We are a tuition-free Montessori charter school.

Maria Montessori Academy (MMA) is a tuition-free public elementary and junior high charter school located in North Ogden, UT. 

Our school opened in 2010 and offers parents a choice in free public education for kindergarten through ninth grade.



Maria Montessori Academy is built upon the educational legacy of Dr. Maria Montessori who believed that all children are uniquely intelligent.

The Montessori Method focuses on the whole child and facilitating the development of the child’s independence and sense of personal empowerment.

There are very few tuition-free Montessori schools!

The mission of Maria Montessori Academy is to provide an individualized education that promotes academic excellence founded on the authentic philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. 

Maria Montessori Academy will craft each child’s education in partnership with educators and parents to achieve higher levels of academic, personal and social achievement, thereby preparing students to become constructive contributors to their community.
