Capital Campaign

In 2018, 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 Gordon Avenue location is currently underutilized and the layout of the space requires us to have four teachers in our Primary class, double the traditional number.

The Absorbent Mind (1949)

The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.’
