About Montessori

The Montessori method was developed by the devoutly Catholic Maria Montessori, an educational theorist who lived from 1870 to 1952. She developed a new education method based on a careful observation and a thorough understanding of the child.

Essentially, a Montessori approach to education is personalized to each child’s learning style, stage of development, and interests. Children develop complete academic and foundations through hands-on experience, real-world application, and problem-solving using the Montessori Method of education. St. John Paul II Classical School offers the only Catholic Montessori option in Green Bay.

A Classical, Montessori Approach 

A Montessori education fits seamlessly into a Catholic, classical education. As a devout Catholic herself, Maria Montessori saw a child to be taught, not a curriculum or a method to be implemented. Thus, the efforts of Montessori and classical educators alike are devoted to caring for the whole child: mind, body, and soul. Pedagogy in both a Montessori and a classical school is Catholic – it is centered on the person. 

In a classical Catholic, Montessori classroom, your child will use beautifully crafted, hands-on materials to absorb a variety of impressions and then naturally begin to classify these impressions. Each of these impressions taken in through the senses and the process of classification build the child’s intellect. Thus, through a carefully prepared environment and expert guidance from the teacher, a student will thrive intellectually, spiritually, and physically.
