Making a difference in the world...
Every child has a fascination with the elements of our world...the path of a falling snowflake, the rippling light on a river's surface, a cricket's steady chirp. Children instinctively reach out to experience and understand the world. The Montessori classroom presents the possibilities for this exploration...

The Montessori approach to education was developed by Maria Montessori, a visionary Italian anthropologist and physician. Begun in 1907 with a small group of children in Rome, Montessori Education is now implemented on six continents and has proven effective across cultural boundaries and socio-economic levels. In North America alone there are approximately 5000 private Montessori schools and 250 public Montessori schools. The growth of Montessori education has created a demand for highly qualified Montessori teachers.

If you seek a viable, proven teaching alternative in education, the graduate programs in Montessori Education offer opportunities to become fully trained as a Montessori teacher, while simultaneously completing an advanced degree. In today's educational climate, an advanced degree enhances opportunities for professional advancement and leadership. This unique program is offered through Loyola University Maryland in partnership with a select group of affiliate Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) institutes.
