The mission of Muskegon Montessori Academy for Environmental Change (MMAEC) is to prepare students to be academically and environmentally excellent for sustained success in a global economy. The Academy will sharpen critical thinking skills of its students through learning that remains relevant, active, environmentally focused, and globally mindful. The vision of MMAEC is to enhance student health and learning while conserving natural resources and empowering students to develop sustainable behaviors, enabling them to become stewards of the future.

We recognize that children are natural learners that use adventures and experiences to shape their every day lives. When you envision your child’s education, do you really see them reading a textbook cover to back? At Muskegon Montessori Academy for Environmental Change (MMAEC) the world is our guidebook. Science and nature guide our children at MMAEC to experience learning. What makes us great is our belief that children thrive because we allow their learning to expand to endless possibilities – becoming an individualized learning path for each student.

At MMAEC, we give students learning options. What better way to learn about water filtration than helping revitalize rivers? Learning may begin in the classroom, but our students move from desks to dirt, planting seeds in soil, and tending to our gardens to see what happens afterwards. However, just like snowflakes, we know no two children are alike. We accommodate multiple learning styles by incorporating outdoor classroom experiences with the indoor classroom. Children who are naturally drawn to science will thrive here through our complete, fully accredited Montessori-based education, which is firmly grounded in the disciplines and rewards of science.
