Cross of Life Christian Montessori School is an integral part of the ministry of Cross of Life Lutheran Church. The purpose of the school is to provide Christian Montessori education in partnership with parents so that children may be nurtured in the Word and Will of God so that:
Children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, appreciation and ideas that are essential for a lifetime of creative learning.
Children are taught by certified Montessori teachers fully accredited by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) in the peaceful surrounding of the Montessori classroom
Children feel the inner security in this well-ordered environment to develop the confidence to be an independent learner and have the freedom to be curious and discover.
Children can build, success upon success, and develop a positive attitude toward school, a sense of community and habits of concentration and persistence.
Children learn to recognize themselves as persons of worth and learn to understand and appreciate their talents and gifts from God. Though much has been said about the academic achievement of Montessori Students, the value lies in the self-discipline, self-mastery and love of learning that the children achieve.
Children may be provided with this comprehensive program of education, so that they may develop their talents and skills for responsible Christian living and service.
The above purposes shall shape and direct all policies and programs at Cross of Life Christian Montessori School.
