Our Story

St. Christopher’s by-the-Sea Montessori School was born in 1968 with the opening of its preschool program. In subsequent years, the school expanded to include elementary education for children in grades one through five.

Today, St. Christopher’s offers a beautiful and nurturing educational environment within the diverse and international community of Key Biscayne and the surrounding vibrant Miami area.

St. Christopher’s is blessed with gifted, caring Montessori – credentialed teachers committed to utilizing the world acclaimed Montessori method of teaching.

Within this beautifully prepared environment children and youth are encouraged to discover and learn in ways that help them realize their highest potential. Through work and play, children come to understand responsibility, respect, integrity and values both moral and spiritual that will provide a solid foundation for life.

The child gives us a beautiful lesson – that in order to form and maintain our intelligence, we must use our hands.
