World Leaders in Montessori Education
A pioneer in Montessori teacher education, Xavier was the first program in the country to offer graduate-level Montessori preparation nearly 50 years ago.
Now, Xavier’s Montessori education programs and professional resources are sought by educators worldwide, and its partnerships extend from schools and districts in Cincinnati and the Midwest to South Korea and China.
This online program makes Xavier's Montessori degree even more accessible to teachers and education professionals here and abroad. It is designed for current Montessori-credentialed teachers looking to further their knowledge in the education field, and for general and special education teachers looking to enhance their skillset with Montessori philosophy. Xavier’s Montessori degree is also recommended for non-education professionals who work with children, such as social workers and school nurses.
Those at the heart of the Montessori Institute believe that a Montessori education is about more than earning a degree, and Xavier strives to promote the Montessori educational philosophy, with the belief that a focus on Montessori is about making the world a better place overall.
