Christopher Academy is the oldest Montessori school in New Jersey serving the community and surrounding areas with a legacy spanning over 57 years and throughout generations.
Our Montessori-certified teachers create a peaceful and secure environment which cultivates in each child a lifelong love of learning and a sense of one's place in the world. A child's natural instincts and the qualities and the skills needed to progress on to the elementary years and throughout life are developed through our multi-age classrooms and practices in grace and courtesy unique to the Montessori philosophy.
"It is with deep, heartfelt gratitude that I write this to thank you for another spectacular year at Christopher Academy for our child. Her development is marked by so many factors but mainly your day to day ability to let the individual in her thrive. When friends and family ask me about her time at Christopher Academy, I’m often at a loss for words and don’t know where to even begin. The lessons she learned both as pupil and friend have set the most incredible foundation for a lifetime of learning and relationship building (& maintenance!)..."
