SMA opened its doors in 2018 to spread an education that promotes Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. SMA offers a truly unique learning environment, infusing a traditional Montessori curriculum with the Byzantine Catholic faith tradition. It is a perfect combination. The Montessori Method uses hands on materials to help children develop concentration, coordination, a sense of order, independence, and a love of learning, while the Byzantine liturgy embodies spiritual realities in physical signs and symbols.
Through individualized teaching and hands-on learning in a rich, faith-filled environment, Sophia Montessori Academy engages children with wonder of God and develops the whole person: intellectually, physically, and spiritually. Denver-area families have taken notice: In only three years, Sophia Montessori Academy had expanded from an initial class of 19 to 35 students.
Since then, many families were turned away due to our lack of space. Finally, after years of prayer and planning, we have been invited into a new space next to St. Francis de Sales parish, which will allow us to welcome more families and elementary students.
New Space Features:
Space for up to 3 primary classrooms
Space for one lower elementary classroom and one upper elementary classroom
An outdoor playground
Access to St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church
Sufficient office space for staff, visiting parents, and administrative needs
Space for a flex room- indoor recess, after care, extra curricular classes, library, etc...
