Montessori by the Sea provides a warm and inviting academic environment where we deliver high quality, experiential, hands-on curriculum; foster respect and cooperation, and allow each child to realize his or her maximum potential.


Montessori by the Sea is dedicated to the Montessori method of education by providing a child-centered curriculum that includes guided discovery through hands-on learning within multi-aged classrooms. We prepare engaging, fun and challenging experiential lessons to satisfy students' natural curiosity, which in turn keeps them eager to learn, develops their ability to stay focused on tasks, become self-reliant, and take on leadership roles.  We use the beautiful seaside setting around our campus as an opportunity to teach our students to understand and care for the natural environment and the aquatic and wildlife in our area. 

School History

Montessori by the Sea was established in 1985 as an outreach program of the Pass-A-Grille Beach Community Church to serve the local community with a high quality Montessori, early childhood program. Due to its popularity and  great interest of the MbtS families, the school expanded to include the elementary programs. Today, we serve ages 3-12 years old, Preschool-6th grade. We accept students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.  All religions and faiths are respected.
