Macomb Montessori Academy is a tuition-free kindergarten through sixth-grade public school.

Here, you can expect a school where children’s natural desire to learn is celebrated, where moving at their own pace is encouraged, and their unique learning style is embraced.

Our multi-age classrooms are lead by State and Montessori Certified Teachers that guide students through long blocks of uninterrupted work time. We are dedicated to working together in supporting, nurturing and guiding our students to their brightest future. The Montessori Method allows for individualized learning for all aged children.

MIChoice & Montessori

What do Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Princess Diana, and Bill and Hilary Clinton have in common? They were all Montessori parents.

What do the founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the founder of Amazon, Jeffrey Bezos, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Julia Child have in common? They were all Montessori students.

Curiosity, creativity, and passion for life long learning are all hallmarks of the Montessori Method, where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore their interests, and develop mastery through hands-on experience.

Macomb Montessori Academy is managed by MIChoice, a family-owned, Michigan-based, education service provider.  Our team is passionate about all things Montessori.  Over the years, we have developed a solid curriculum that links our schools in the Montessori philosophy, but celebrates each community’s uniqueness.

Our teachers combine both Montessori and Michigan Department of Education school standards. These dual responsibilities help ensure that your child is receiving the best education they possibly can.  The mixed-age classes enable students to learn and develop at their own pace and develop their role among peers.

We believe the Montessori education is one of the greatest gifts children can receive.  Please explore the information on this website, and see for yourself why Montessori works!
