  • Primary (ages 2.5-6) ACM’s primary program summer session is open to regularly enrolled students and those who attend elsewhere during the school year between the ages of 2.5 and 6 (rising first graders). Our summer program features a Montessori-style schedule with a 3-hour uninterrupted morning work period. Montessori materials will be presented by an experienced lead teacher, however academic lessons are de-emphasized and a variety of “toy work” and other non-Montessori manipulatives and art activities are also available. This offers the stable routine young children need while providing a change of pace for regular students. Splash days and fun, messy, outdoor activities will also be scheduled weekly to ensure children get a relaxing, multisensory summer experience.
  • Elementary. ACM is interested in offering a summer program for elementary-aged children (6-11), however a minimum enrollment of 6 children is required to make the program feasible this first year. Those interested in this program are invited to enroll online but may delay the enrollment fee until minimum enrollment is confirmed. The ACM elementary “Cosmic Summer” is inspired by the exciting Montessori elementary curriculum. Students will journey through “Big History”, exploring astronomy, geology, biology, archeology, anthropology, ancient civilizations, language and math, getting a taste of the Montessori elementary experience. Each week is built around a classic Montessori “Great Lesson” which inspires inquiry into a different history or science topic. A variety of hands-on activities develop each week’s theme, and daily group games and collaborative projects help children develop peacekeeping skills and emotional intelligence. Children will also enjoy 2-3 field trips each week to museums, water activities, and arts/culture/movies.
