ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School applies the philosophy, methods, 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. This 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.

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 is an American Montessori Society (AMS) member school. Sterling follows the AMS educational guidelines, as well as those of the North Carolina Department of Instruction and North Carolina Office of Charter Schools.
