Our Mission

The mission of St. Christopher’s By-the-Sea Montessori School is to provide excellence in education using the Montessori method within the openhearted inclusive Episcopal tradition.


To awaken the spirit of God in every child
To partner with parents in their child’s moral, spiritual and learning development
To nurture the students’ growth so they become inner directed, responsible, graceful, respectful with good self-concept and integrity
To stimulate life- long love for learning


The purpose of St. Christopher's By-the-Sea Montessori School is to develop intellectual curiosity, creativity, and confidence in each child so they may engage in our world with compassion and integrity.

Clearly, we have a social duty towards this future man, this man who exists as a silhouette around the child, a duty towards this man of tomorrow. Perhaps a great future leader or a great genius is with us and his power will come from the power of the child he is today. This is the vision which we must have.
