Aquinas Montessori School

ABOUT US Aquinas Montessori is a private AMI school of 50 years with... two campuses in Mount Vernon and in Old Town Alexandria that provide a nurturing, loving, joyous environment where each child is respected and treated as an individual. Our optimal class sizes allow students to work at their own pace and level, and AMI certified teachers guide and help children to develop autonomy, creative thinking and love of learning. Aquinas Montessori is a non-sectarian school and we admit all children, ages 3 to 12, regardless of race, creed, color or origin. Currently in our 51st year, we have consistently produced highly confident, self-motivated learners who are well prepared for their middle school years and beyond. Our families attest that they have indeed found a unique environment in Montessori classrooms where lasting values are emphasized, where kids are truly happy. SCHOOL PROGRAMS PRIMARY LEVEL : ages 3 to 6 at the Aquinas and Old Town Montessori Schools The Primary curriculum is a fully comprehensive three year program where children learn to compare, classify and clarify the world around them. Mathematical manipulative materials help the child to learn concepts of math, such as sequence, place, value, operations and memorization of math facts. Language exercises include spoken language that helps to develop vocabulary and phonemic awareness while use of tactile and manipulative materials leads to development of writing and reading. Exercises in practical life improve motor skills, independence, control and concentration. The child also learns the basics of the world's geography, geology, history, astronomy and biology through materials and stories, and art and music are integrated into daily classroom activities. ELEMENTARY LEVEL : ages 6 to 12 at the Aquinas Montessori School The elementary level continues the development of the child, the curriculum at this level is expanded as widely as possible to enkindle interest in every area of culture, mathematics, geometry, language, history, geography, botany, zoology, earth science, chemistry, physics, art, music, crafts, drama, and physical education. The elementary children also participate in the Junior Great Books Program. Our purpose is to lead the children toward Dr. Maria Montessori's goal of "cosmic education, which is a complete vision of reality and man, and an ability to interpret both of them in their essence, nature, and reciprocal relationship." The work at each age group represents a continuous program so the parents should be committed to allowing their children to complete each three-year cycle. AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS The Drama Club This is a highlight of the school year unique to the Aquinas students. Each year the Upper Elementary Students participate and perform in a production of a Broadway Jr. musical. Our students get the experience of performing on stage with wireless microphones, a professional sound technician, videographer and choreographer. The end results are unforgettable performances, enhanced self-esteems and memories captured on DVDs that can be shared and cherished for a lifetime. An experience of performing on stage is life changing for many a shy student. The Classics Club Upper Elementary and Third Year Lower Elementary Students read enthralling classic tales from around the world. The students meet with a Classics Club leader on a monthly basis to partake in lively discussion. At each meeting, the following month’s reading selection will be revealed. This is a wonderful opportunity to expand one’s knowledge of classic literature. Girl Scouts Girl Scouts meetings are held at the Aquinas Montessori School. Lego Engineering club Lego Engineering club meetings are held at the Aquinas Montessori School. Silver Knights Chess club Silver Knights Chess club meetings are held at the Aquinas Montessori School. SUMMER CAMP Aquinas Montessori Summer Day Camp at Mount Vernon campus We would like to invite your child to join us in a stimulating summer adventure. Aquinas Montessori Summer Day Camp is about learning new skills, making new friends, having new experiences, and most importantly, it’s about plain, old fashioned fun! Our Montessori Summer Day Camp program promotes learning as a joy, which is never outgrown. We think your child will be as enthusiastic about it as the children we currently have with us; hence our invitation. A typical day for a 3 to 9 year old includes experience in a Montessori classroom, where the child manipulates a great variety of developmental materials. There are nature and art activities, stories, songs, and games. Our staff is composed of professionally trained teachers. Swimming instruction is provided daily by a certified instructor. The Aquinas heated pool ranges in depth from two and a half to five feet. This non-threatening size offers beginning and novice swimmers an opportunity for great success in a safe environment. Even the youngest swimmers feel comfortable in the shallow end and make remarkable progress in just a few weeks. Childhood is short —and so important in determining the course of a life. Do consider giving your child the opportunity to discover that learning is a joy!
