Each course is rigorous and takes one Academic year to complete. All Montessori Academy teachers have gone through our courses, as have a large percentage of Montessori teachers in Washington state.

Advantages of an Academic Year Program:

  • Learning progresses through a regular 10-month Academic Year (September -- end of June).
  • Students may do internship during the same or the following year.
  • Students have time to assimilate the information/knowledge presented weekly.
  • Students can immediately apply what they learn in the Course to their own classroom.
    (Studies show that immediate implementation of a new skill reinforces it.)
  • Students prepare materials that become teaching tools applicable in their classroom.
  • Summer break gives plenty of time for students to prepare more materials and be ready for the new school year.
