Sophia Montessori Academy will open its doors in August in Denver. We will start with one classroom for children ages 3-6. Our mission is to offer children an outstanding education where they can discover the wonder of God through the Byzantine Catholic faith, where they have the opportunity to acquire a strong love for learning, and where they can grow to their full potential through academic excellence and service using the Montessori Method of education. This is accomplished through a rigorous academic, classically-based curriculum following Dr. Montessori’s method of education.
Our mission is to bring the children into relationship with Christ through a way of life based in Truth, Beauty, and Goodness as we lead them to their full God-given potential. Our approach is founded on the reality of Christ as the Good Shepherd. Religious education is fostered specifically through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and supported through daily prayer.
To open our doors, we are asking for the support of our community, friends, and family.
