Immaculata Montessori


Immaculata Catholic Montessori was established at St. John’s in the Fall of 2020.  We are so excited to have this new early childhood (2.5-6 years), parish-based option available for our families. Although our enrollment for the 2021-2022 School Year is full, we still offer tours of the school for prospective students in the event a space becomes available.  Once you have completed a tour of our Montessori, please fill out the Wait List Form to be added to the ICM Wait List.  Thank you!
