Letter from our Principal
“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” - Maria Montessori
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
I would like to personally thank you for your interest in St. Pius X Montessori School. It is an exciting place to be as we continue to expand and grow our Montessori programs, offering students a unique academic and spiritual education, one that provides the qualities a student needs to develop a strong foundation for life.
Our academic programs offer students the opportunity to learn content at a pace that matches his or her unique potential, without the randomly imposed intervals of time. Students receive a truly individualized education that leads to a joy of learning and a sense of resourcefulness, collaboration, and accountability as global citizens. Our prepared Montessori classroom environments inspire children to investigate and connect with their learning through meaningful interactions with the materials and each other. Through discovery and exploration, children use their diverse and God-given gifts to absorb knowledge and construct meaning of the world around them.
As the only Catholic Montessori School in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, we serve children aged 3 years through 8th grade. We offer both a full and half-day program to students aged 3-4 years old as well as Before and After Care to full day students at every level. We emphasize character development and moral behavior through our faith, and boast a dedicated and close-knit parent community who support our mission.
As you decide what the best school is for your child, we encourage you to contact us to arrange a tour and observation during the school day. You are most welcome to explore our school and discover how our Montessori programs would benefit your child.
I look forward to meeting you.
Mrs. Jennifer Ripley
