Children find their place in the world through excellent Montessori education at Mountaintop. From preschool through adolescence, our students seize their responsibilities toward people and the planet with joy. At Mountaintop children learn at a natural pace, cultivating plants and animals across the 9-acre campus on Pantops and discovering the interdependency of every living thing. Through partnerships with other local nonprofits, students make a difference in their community and their world and acquire a habit of service. Mountaintop is accredited by AMS and VAIS.
