The MIChoice Montessori Model

Together MIChoice and its sister company, Choice Schools Associates, have developed a high-performing public Montessori charter school model that is being used throughout the state of Michigan. This model is based on their successful management and operation of two established Montessori charter schools in the Metro Detroit Area – Creative Montessori Academy in Southgate (opened in 2001) and Four Corners Montessori Academy in Madison Heights (opened in 2009). These two schools have brought positive attention to the Montessori educational movement and its resulting inherent benefits to students.

In the fall of 2013, MIChoice opened three additional schools across the state of Michigan that support this successful model:

  • Battle Creek Montessori Academy
  • Macomb Montessori Academy
  • Muskegon Montessori Academy for Environmental Change

As MIChoice/Choice Schools Associates feel that this method of education is a natural fit with their own principals and values, they continue to seek ways to share this model with proponents of public school educational choice. It is our goal to create additional Montessori charter schools available across the state of Michigan. As such, we have developed a document for interested parties, which explains the model in detail.
