The Montessori Academy of Colorado is a metropolitan school that engages each child through innovative academics, exploration of character, and a fearless, forward mindset. Students and families benefit most when they embrace the whole Montessori journey, MAC offers an authentic Montessori education in Nido, Toddler, Primary, Integrated Kindergarten, and Elementary; serving students ages eight weeks to sixth grade. Credentialed Montessori teachers lead each classroom, and our individualized learning curriculums allow all children to work at their own level in order to maximize their achievements. With mixed ages in all classrooms, children are excited to learn from their peers and help others; naturally going from novice to leader within their classrooms. Each MAC community builds on the next with new experiences, challenging materials, and endless opportunities to learn.
The MAC Elementary experience empowers students to reach their own personal potential and develop the confidence and capabilities to positively impact their world. In the Elementary work cycles, students use Montessori materials for firsthand understanding of mathematics, language, literacy, science, history, and geography while in a Spanish-English speaking classroom. However, our Elementary students learn best using Denver as their classroom. Going Outs are at the heart of Elementary at MAC; these experiential explorations are designed to take advantage of MAC’s metropolitan location and include weekly student-designed field trips that are integrated into their research and class curriculum. Service-learning is also a critical component of our Elementary program, encouraging children to give back to their community.
From our robust academics to exploration of the Arts, MAC celebrates creativity and curiosity in all our students by encouraging hands-on, self-paced, collaborative learning through interactive experiences. We create an inclusive environment where students acquire self-efficacy, determination, and social and emotional intelligence from an educational foundation built on integrity, compassion, and support.
