Alcuin School is creating an educational evolution, which encompasses a strong Montessori and International Baccalaureate education, within a dynamic environment for the opportunity for students to become “innovative thinkers and passionate learners.” We are located on a sprawling 12-acre campus and winding creek/organic garden. In order to accomplish our philosophy, we work toward the following goals: To provide a solid educational foundation for our students, beginning with early childhood and continuing through the middle school years. Fewer than 10 schools in the world provide the combination of IB and Montessori education found at Alcuin. Parents select Alcuin for a progressive education which focuses on the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
Our primary educational purpose is to provide an enriched academic and creative environment that features strong Montessori and International Baccalaureate programs that enhance our students’ intellectual, social, aesthetic and physical development enabling them to live happy, rewarding and productive lives.
