At Vernon Hills Montessori Academy, we are committed to creating a supportive and stimulating environment where each child learns at his own pace and we allow time for that growth to take place. The Montessori Method is based on a deep respect for and understanding of child development.

Our focused educational effort is based on the belief that children have an innate desire to learn, manifest their potential, and discover ways to contribute meaningfully to the world community.


It is a philosophy with practical returns. Our students consistently demonstrate high levels of academic achievements as well as confidence, sensitivity towards others, and independence.

VERNON HILLS MONTESSORI ACADEMY and ARTS are established for families with children 6 Weeks - 12 years old with programs that promote self-respect, independence, and responsibility to their community. Vernon Hills Montessori Academy (formerly Montessori & Music Academy) was founded in 2000 and opened its doors as the first Montessori School in America with a music curriculum.
