Donate to: Franciscan Montessori Earth School
The Franciscan Montessori Earth School/Saint Francis Academy has been on the leading edge of private Montessori education in Portland for more than 35 years. We are the only accredited pre-K through 8th grade Catholic Montessori school in the Western US. We serve children ages 2 ½ through 14 on our 10 acre campus in SE Portland. Our Montessori curriculum is individualized, multi-aged and emphasizes ecology, the study of the interconnectedness of all living things. Our established gardens and close proximity to wilderness enhance our outdoor and environmental programs which include overnight camping trips for elementary and middle school students. We also offer a full complement of programs including before and after school childcare, nutrition, athletics, religion, art and music.
