We are a Catholic Montessori School in the Diocese of Arlington and are accredited through the Virginia Catholic Education Association. We serve children from 18 months to age 12. All of our guides are trained Montessori teachers. Our mission is to cooperate with parents in their role as primary educators of their children by offering programs that authentically support the physical, intellectual and spiritual development of the child. These programs are founded upon the discoveries of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Atrium experience is at the heart of all we do. Through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, we strive to fulfill the spiritual and developmental needs of each individual child.
