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.

Aquinas Montessori is a non-sectarian school and we admit all children regardless of race, creed, color or origin. Currently in our 50th 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

This link shows a bionic Iron Man arm that Aquinas graduate, Evan Kuester (my son), designed and 3D-printed for a young boy who was missing an arm.  Aquinas played a huge role in developing Evan's creativity and sense of social responsibility, not to mention his fascination with science. Evan was an Aquinas student through the 6th grade and he swears he learned more here than he has since.

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!!
