Global Montessori Academy

About Us

Since 1984, GMA has worked to provide students with an authentic, quality Montessori educational experience. From our convenient location in Prairie Village, Kansas, our students benefit from Kansas City’s finest art museums, parks and other cultural gifts just outside our door.

Global Montessori Academy upholds the highest standards of a true Montessori education.

GMA is currently pursuing a rigorous, multi-year certification process through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), founded in 1929 “to maintain the integrity of [Montessori’s] life’s work, and to ensure that it would be perpetuated after her death.” Through its certification and teacher training, AMI strives to maintain the principles of Dr. Montessori and thereby help students worldwide to reach their full potential in society. We currently offer four Children’s House classrooms and a Lower Elementary classroom, each led by a certified Montessori teacher and a classroom assistant. In addition, we have an Upper Elementary classroom for grades four, five, and six. We also have one classroom for our toddler program, which may accommodate up to 12 children from 18- to 36 months, also led by a Montessori-trained teacher and an assistant with extensive childcare experience.
