Child-Centered Education for Life

Central Montessori Academy is a private independent school offering toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary classrooms in an authentic Montessori environment.

Located in northwest Cincinnati, we serve families from Springfield Township, Mt. Healthy, North College Hill, Colerain, Glendale, Wyoming, Forest Park, Fairfield, West Chester, Mason, and other neighborhoods.

Central Montessori Academy provides children with a world-class education, but also nurtures the heart to develop the child’s self-confidence, personal creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.

Education at Central Montessori Academy is about providing each child with the experience to learn in a way that works for the unique individual they are. The children then live what they learn; making the lessons become a part of who they are.
