We ignite the child’s innate love of learning in a diverse and nurturing community by integrating authentic Montessori philosophy with contemporary, research-based educational methods. We empower each individual to make knowledgeable, responsible, and peaceful contributions to the global community.
Montessori School of Louisville was founded in 2006 by a group of Montessori parents and educators committed to supporting the growth of Montessori education in the Metro Louisville area. MSL opened its doors with just 28 students in August, 2006 with one Early Childhood classroom (ages 3-6), one Lower Elementary classroom (ages 6-9), and one Upper Elementary classroom (ages 9-12). The generous support of Father Bill Martin and members of the Our Mother of Sorrows parish made it possible for the school to grow and build a strong foundation during its first three years. A second Early Childhood classroom was added in the 2007 - 2008 school year, and the year ended with a special celebration in honor of the first MSL Middle School graduate.
Our school currently includes four early childhood, two lower elementary, one upper elementary, and one middle school classrooms. Each space is uniquely designed to meet the developmental needs of our community. MSL serves over 180 students, their families, and 30 full-time employees, representing a 500% enrollment growth in just nine years.
Montessori School of Louisville is one of three AMS accredited schools in Kentucky and the only Montessori school in the state that holds dual accreditation with AMS and SACS. MSL is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). MSL is also in compliance with the Kentucky Department of Health and Human Services Division of Regulated Child Care.
