Hudson County Montessori School says
is a non-profit, non-sectarian,

and wrap around care in a Montessori setting

through grade 8. We are fully accredited by

HCMS was founded in 1972. With campuses
both in New Rochelle, NY and
Danbury, CT, we stand as one of the
largest independent Montessori schools in
the country. Before and After-School hours
as well as traditional Summer Camp programming
reflect our commitment to the needs of students
and parents in our ever-changing society.
At Hudson, we follow the Montessori approach to multi-age groupings. Students work in the same classroom for a three-year cycle. Given the length of time together, students come to know their teachers as mentors.
Our students journey through a rigorous and challenging curriculum at their own intellectual pace. Each child progresses as he/she is ready for the next challenge.
Hudson is rigorously preparing children for the world of tomorrow. We
inspire students to think for themselves
teach them how to do their own research
help them develop organized work plans
challenge them to defend their own conclusions
expose them to unique and diverse perspectives
instill respect for different points of view
At Hudson Country Montessori School, we provide the
tools, teachers and support
to guide each child to personal
and academic success.
Montessori offers an education of life-long learning –
teaching skills essential for navigation in our
ever changing global society.
Central to the Montessori method is
an emphasis on inquiry; students are encouraged
to explore, question, observe, and discover.
When presented through a hands-on discovery-driven model,
children become fully engaged in their work and apply themselves beyond
the scope of curriculum. Our students are self-motivated learners,
“can do” children who readily accept challenge
and actively seek knowledge.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
