About the Provider

Description: Welcome to one of Altadena’s premier Montessori schools. This historic building on the corner of Lake and Mendocino street set against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains is the ideal setting for a your child to learn and experience the world. We offer the excellence of a private Academy and the philosophy of a Montessori School. We offer unique progressive programs for infants, toddlers, pre primary and primary classes. Princeton Academy fosters an environment of individual education, tailored to each child’s learning style and capabilities. Students thrive in stimulating specially prepared environments designed to foster natural curiosity and self confidence. The Princeton Montessori Philosophy is rooted in the work of Dr. Maria Montessori, a visionary who approached education from a scientific point of view. Princeton Academy students are taught with special materials and presentations to capture the interest of the child. Each child has a unique learning path that we honor by teaching to the child’s ability in all the skill areas such as math, reading, spelling, composition and penmanship. Lessons in “cultural subjects” such as history, geography and science are grouped according to the child’s interest.
