Maria Montessori noted that the adolescent is undergoing two major transitions:
1 “On the physical side a transition from an infantile to an adult state.”
2 “On the psychological side, a transition from the child who has to live in a family, to the adult who has to live in society.”
Middle School Program Tuition
Monday through Friday
12 – 15 years old
Renaissance Erdkinder or Middle School is a program based on Maria Montessori’s recommendations for the third plane of development – the adolescent.
It strives to address the needs of the adolescent and focuses on preparing these “fledgling adults” for a well-integrated adult life in society.
Development of Independence
We emphasize the development of independence, self-reliance, compassion and service by having the students form a community, which works together to set up and run real, agro-centered enterprises. The students are asked to the greatest extent possible to organize and run many other aspects of the immediate and extended community life
Integrated and Comprehensive Education
The syllabus allows the student to have an integrated and comprehensive education, one which is pertinent and made relevant to the real work that they do.
Foster Faith & Virtue
As a Catholic Montessori School the adolescent’s needs are addressed at the deepest level – by fostering faith and virtue in all aspects of our common life.
Safe & Joyful Community
Our Catholic Montessori Adolescent Program offers a safe, nurturing, faith-filled and joyful community of adults and young people, joined together to support learning and development. Within this environment, the adolescent acquires a sense of self-worth and self-confidence that will shape the adult they become.
