The Aquinas & Old Town Montessori Schools
Home

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. From the moment they step into the classroom, our students are taught "Grace and Courtesy" as well as a set of universal values, which include respect of self and others, honesty, integrity, responsibility, empathy, compassion, and a willingness to work out conflicts peacefully.
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 53rd 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.

TESTIMONIALS

Our daughter attends the Aquinas Montessori school.
We couldn't be happier, and our daughter can't wait to go to school every morning. It is a very special place.

It's a gem of a school--fabulous staff and overall educational program. True Montessori learning, both of our children attend and adore school. We cannot say enough great things about Aquinas. We changed military assignments simply due to this excellent school! Two thumbs up!!
