Capital Campaign

In 2018-2019, the Montessori School of Charlottesville is seeking to raise funds to build a new detached addition to the Gordon Avenue location that will serve as the toddler classroom. The addition will allow for a second Primary classroom in the existing building while increasing our Scholarship funding into the future.
