Elizabeth Academy is an inclusive private non-profit Montessori school in Salt Lake City, Utah, designed to help diverse learners from 18 months to 12 years of age reach their highest potential. We know that each child has unique interests, abilities, and needs and honoring that individuality opens unlimited possibilities.
We guide young people in developing the skills to be successful in life: initiative, concentration, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, respect, responsibility, empathy, and the desire to “give back” through service. Our students are encouraged to ask questions, learn how to find answers, and process information for real understanding. The way that they learn how to learn in our Montessori environment shapes the way they will master new skills and solve problems for the rest of their lives.
We are committed to Inclusion. It is our reason to be. Children with special needs are included in our classrooms with typical and gifted children in a way that is reflective of the population at large (15%). We have Montessori teachers and Special Educators trained in the Montessori method in every classroom. The combined training and experience of our Montessori and Special Educator teaching teams is extremely effective in supporting the academic, social, emotional, spiritual, and creative needs of each child.
Our vision is to bring an inclusive model of education with an integrated arts focus to children throughout Utah and hopefully (ultimately) the United States. We dream big. Our children, our future, depend on it.
