About Owen County Montessori

Mission and Vision

Located in beautiful Owenton, Kentucky, Owen County Montessori is an independent, non-profit, private school. Our Montessori environment provides a unique, hands-on alternative to the mainstream classroom. The Montessori method provides students with an interactive approach to learning that focuses on independent problem solving, self-discovery and nature intensive learning.

Our goal is to support the whole child through their individual journey of attaining core academic knowledge while nurturing their social, physical, emotional and cognitive growth. Our classroom environment will offer a warm and inviting atmosphere where a student’s sense of belonging, identity and security are paramount.

The transformational Montessori approach to education integrates academics, art and ethics into experiential learning. The Montessori method has been proven to create enthusiastic learners, who are self propelled, critical thinkers with well developed social skills and a sense of responsibility to the greater community.

We hope to foster a community of self-confident individuals with a love of learning that does not end when their formal education is complete.
