Dear Parents and Friends:
Thank you for your interest in the Cardinal Bernardin Montessori Academy.
We are delighted to present our school’s new website at the start of this New Year! The joy and peace in learning you see throughout it’s pages are a real testament to the success of our mission.
This project, along with our new logo and brand is the result of intensive consultation and collaboration across the school and beyond with parents, staff and a close eye and heart towards the needs of our students, over the past 18 months. The Academy has a clearly defined strategic plan of action which embeds excellence, innovation and continuous improvement in everything we do.
The next five years will see renewed commitment to Cardinal Bernardin Montessori Academy’s foundational mission established under the direction of Sr. Bee Jay Chizek, in 1998…”to inspire, nurture and empower children to live up to their individual talents and capabilities through an educational model that combines a Montessori education with a Catholic environment.” We offer Parent/Infant and Parent/Toddler classes (0-18 months), Transition classes (young 3’s), Primary (3-6) and Lower Elementary (6-12). We plan to expand through Middle School (12-14) by 2023/24. Central to our mission is the Montessori Method of education, so unique in that we are the only Catholic Montessori Elementary School in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
We believe parents are the primary teachers of their children. Our role is to support you by tapping into your child’s intrinsic motivation to turn their natural interests into joyful learning. We look forward to working with you and the entire Cardinal Bernardin Montessori Academy family as we grow our wonderful school and bring this vision to life.
Our website will help you learn more about the Academy and I hope you will schedule a visit to our campus. We can’t wait to meet you!
Mrs. Barb Labotka
