The Journey

“Although my husband and I knew that we had made a good choice for our daughter to attend preschool at MSC, the experience we had at ‘Journey’ made us realize the true impact that this amazing education was about to have on our daughter and our family. The most memorable moment was when 2 of the graduated students spoke on the ‘panel’ discussion. They were not only intelligent (which was no surprise), but they were outgoing, funny, comfortable in front of a room of adults and very well rounded. It was a wonderful experience for both me and my husband.” - Jamie Weaver


The Journey and “Why MontesSORI?”
Saturday, November 15, 2014
10:00 am-2:30 pm

(a Luncheon as well as CHild-care for currently enrolled MCS students will be Provided)


"Journey" is offered to provide parents of MCS students an opportunity to experience directly and in part the "prepared environment," materials, lessons and personnel the students encounter daily. 

Why Montessori?

“Why Montessori?” is a panel presentation featuring MCS faculty, parents and alumni followed by a question and answer period. This is a great way to get answers from those who’ve experienced the power an MCS education affords.   

This event is specifically designed for the following parents:

  • Those new to MCS or those who missed this event in the past
  • Those at Primary and Lower Elementary, who are considering the next step
  • Those in Upper Elementary interested in how children will transition to junior high

All MCS families are welcome to attend and will be receiving a registration flyer which will be sent through the classrooms or be available to download. New parents to MCS are expected to attend. Please note, we will provide limited childcare for currently enrolled student for this event. Please RSVP to Alyssa Morris at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
