Our school is comprised of two separate educational entities. The Academy serves children 3 and 4 years of age, and is a tuition based program. The Charter School serves children ages 5 – 14, which includes Kindergarten through 8th grade. Each institution has individualized admissions procedures.
Sterling Montessori Academy & Charter School uses the philosophy, method and didactic material of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). Montessori education, based on children’s developmental needs for freedom within limits, mandates a carefully prepared environment. The prepared environment guarantees exposure to materials and experiences that develop intelligence as well as physical and psychological abilities. The materials are self-correcting, interesting to children, and developmentally appropriate.
We are centrally located in the RTP area with easy access from Raleigh, Cary and Durham.
