Siena Academy is a Catholic Montessori School located in Great Falls, Virginia offering toddler, primary and elementary programs. We are the parish school of Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church.

Our Mission

Our mission is to cooperate with parents in their role as primary educators of their children by offering programs that authentically support the physical, intellectual and spiritual development of the child. These programs are founded upon the discoveries of Dr. Maria Montessori regarding the development of the human person from birth to adulthood.

Our Programs

Siena Academy in Great Falls, VA offers Montessori environments for children from 18 months to 12 years of age in our Toddler, Primary, and Elementary programs. Each of these programs also incorporates the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based catechesis program that aids the child’s encounter with God and prepares him for a life of full participation in the Church.

Siena Academy is fully recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), which was founded by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929 in order to uphold the integrity of her work.
