A Catholic Montessori Academy

John Paul the Great Montessori Academy offers three Programs.  The first is a 3 day a week Primary Program for children ages 3-6 years.  The second is a 5 day a week Elementary Program for children ages 6-12 years. The third is a 5 day a week Middle School Program for students ages 12-16 years.  The Academy’s goal is to expand the Program to include a High School and a Toddler Program.  At this time all our Programs are full.  We invite you to apply but there is a waiting list for this first year.  In our second year, our goal is to grow the Programs that we offer.


Each of the environments has a specifically tailored religious educational environment that meets the requirements of the Diocese of Arlington and our local parish to fulfill sacramental education. Our Catechetical programs are only offered to enrolled families. Our Primary Program offers the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level I.  Our Elementary Program offers the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level II and III.  The first year of Elementary is typically the child’s year to prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion.  Our Middle School Program’s Catechesis is based upon the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. Interwoven into this approach is an emphasis on Apologetics and an introduction to Theology of the Body. Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is typically within the first year.
