Christian Family Montessori School
We believe that each child is integral to the life and work of the school community and that every child can grow to be a kind, courageous, joyful life-learner. We invite you to visit CFMS and to see our mission and values in action.
We are a diverse community of parents, children, and staff working together to provide an affordable Montessori school where children will be prepared to meet the academic, social, and moral challenges ahead of them and grow in a loving relationship with God through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
Kindness: We reflect Christ’s unconditional love of all people.
Curiosity: We nurture independence, self-direction, and joyful learning.
Community: We work together in a welcoming, inclusive, diverse community.
CFMS gives children a foundation in joyful learning, community, faith, and compassion that they will build upon to create a more just and peaceful world.
