Waterfront Academy is a dual immersion (Spanish and English) faith-based Montessori school with emphasis on charity and stewardship in the Catholic tradition.
We serve children between 18 months to 8th grade through several of our programs.
We are preparing children to be the next generation of leaders and decision makers in a global economy through an academically rigorous program adhering to Montessori philosophies that foster independence, problem solving, cultural awareness and Christian stewardship in the Catholic tradition.
This is the time when children use their bodies, senses, and emerging problem-solving skills to learn about and make sense of their world in the ways most meaningful and effective for them.
Montessori was one of the first educators to recognize that the first few years of a child’s life are critical to the development of personality and intellect. This is a Spanish immersion class for children who are 18 months through 36 months by September 30th. Half and full day options available.
Waterfront Academy primary classroom optimizes each child's potential from Pre-school (age 3), Pre-Kinder, and Kindergarten. Children between the age of birth and six possess an "absorbent mind" with a capacity for an almost genius ability to cognitively absorb information. Application of the Montessori pedagogy and the specific materials aids each child's ability to maximize their academic potential.
Our elementary program focuses on developing the whole child through curriculum designed specifically to meet the needs of children 1st through 6th grades and helps develop a life-long love of learning. Our students benefit from small classes and individualized lesson plans. This is an educational experience much different than the traditional model.
As children journey into the wonderful phase of adolescence, our middle school offers a unique educational alternative that fosters intellectual, physical, and emotional development and allows them to achieve academic and leadership excellence, emphasizing respect and compassion toward others in a setting of great natural beauty and immense learning potential.
