Welcome to the Montessori Academy of Lancaster

Are you looking for a safe, caring, hands-on learning environment for your children? While the Montessori approach has been around for over 100 years, our programs have blended the best of traditional Montessori, with innovative learning practices. It only takes a few minutes on our sprawling campus to realize that we have something special! After a brief tour of our toddler, pre-school, and elementary classrooms, you can see the joy the children have in learning through peace education, concrete materials, collaborative age groups, and self-directed learning.

We are fortunate to have 10 acres of outdoor recreational space, plus a new, state-of-the-art, 6,000 square foot multi-purpose room, plus several thousand square feet of indoor classroom and learning spaces. Our staff has spent the year doing both in-person and online instruction and so many children who were unable to return to their former schools have found a new home here in Manheim Township at the Montessori Academy.

We’re looking forward to a robust summer and our camp is nearly full, but we hope to add more spaces soon, so be sure to sign up for the waitlist to be notified when that happens.

With enrollment for 2021-2022 already underway, we’re looking forward to our returning families joining us and some of the new friends we’ve made this year, too! We hope that you will become the next members of our growing, nurturing, supportive community. As the summer progresses, we will be watching and following the latest updates on Covid procedures and guidelines for the coming year.

If 2020 and 2021 have taught us anything, it is that we, and especially children, are resilient and strong and will work together for a brighter, safer, peaceful future!
