Welcome To MAC

The Montessori Academy of Colorado (MAC) benefits students ages 8 weeks - Elementary as a high-standard, urban Montessori school.  We offer innovative, challenging and supportive educational experiences designed to positively influence this world's next generation of leaders. MAC recognizes that the most important and influential years in our children’s education are not at the high school and college level, but the first twelve years of their lives, for it is during this time that the child forms their:

  • character,
  • values,
  • self-image,
  • basic skills & knowledge, and
  • appreciation for culture & the arts. 

In a world of rapid change and new discoveries, we can only guess at the skills our children will need to succeed in the 21st century; therefore, now more than ever, the essential lesson is not what to learn, but how.  A Montessori Academy of Colorado education creates the solid foundation children need to successfully navigate their academic careers, and will continue to benefit them for the rest of their lives.
