We will offer our students a rich, rigorous, and personalized education through Montessori learning, supported with the inspiration of the liberal arts, and the best practices of high-performing urban schools. And we are building an attachment village of supports between school, families, and our community.

We hope to create a teaching environment that is about craftsmanship and humbly striving for excellence, and is also family-friendly and sustainable. Our work is challenging yet profoundly rewarding; it requires flexibility in practice with steadfastness to principle.

Libertas opens in summer 2015 with PreK through 1st grade (Montessori Primary and partial Lower Elementary classes in multi-age, developmental groupings), and are approved to add PreK-3 and up to 6th grade (Upper Elementary) in the coming years. 

Summer Institute and Residency: a quality, sustained Montessori professional development opportunity
We value the strengths offered by teaching candidates from both urban and Montessori contexts, and want to help each meet the needs of teaching in a school that is both. Therefore Libertas has partnered with the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS) to create a Montessori public school teacher Institute & Residency. In our founding year, the summer Institute will run from early June through mid-July. Through the following year, Residents will receive regular observation and feedback from a mentor teacher, and monthly professional development. The Residency will complete with a capstone session the following summer. Libertas is working with NCMPS to obtain both accreditation from both MACTE (i.e. portable Montessori credential) and a public school teacher certification endorsement (i.e. Tennessee teacher license) for this Institute & Residency. The program would be valued at between $6,000 to $10,000, but Libertas will sponsor 100% of that cost for teachers who commit to three years of service. During the Residency (sometimes called "internship"), our Residents will be part- or full-time staff members with salary and benefits; during the summer Institute, participants may be eligible for a stipend. 

Experienced Montessori teachers who may want to help shape this program as trainers and/or mentors are welcome to contact us about opportunities. Please see our Institute & Residency highlights for more information.
