We are an American Montessori Society (AMS) Montessori School, rated Readers’ Poll Favorites in Austin Family Magazine (2014, 2015) and top private Montessori school in Austin Monthly Magazine (2012). The difference at Austin Children’s Academy is the individualized attention and care given to each child. In addition, each classroom is lead by a Montessori certified teacher with a focus on learning that is child-directed and self-paced. Our goal is to develop a strong partnership with each family that leads to a fulfilling community experience.
ACA’s classrooms provide a comforting environment for children to grow with knowledge and confidence. Students experience a well-defined miniature society in the classroom where they work and learn together in harmony while retaining their individuality. With teachers’ support and direction, children become responsible for their own behavior and contribute to the community by observing rules necessary for peaceful living.
The resulting environment enables them to become secure, happy, and inspired to exercise their natural curiosity. They become learners with the self-confidence to solve problems creatively. Self-respect, respect for others, and respect for work are integral parts of the learning experience.
ACA is second to none in education, love, nurturing, and staff preparedness.
Students at ACA develop fundamental skills to foster a successful academic career. The curriculum complements children’s strengths, challenging them all and offering flexibility to support different learning styles. The core curriculum includes five distinct areas: Practical Life, Sensorial Exercises, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Cultural Studies (Geography, History, Science, Music, and Art). The prepared environment of the Montessori classroom allows children to progress at their own pace to meet their developmental needs. In the process, they learn faster and more fully than they would otherwise. It is truly an exciting educational journey.
