Montessori Academy of Naples
Academy of Naples (MAN) is a private, not for profit educational institution
that was founded in 2007 by a group of local Montessori teachers, parents, and
at-large community members. The school serves students from infancy into
adolescence and, from its inception, has been dedicated to creating an
educational experience of high academic standard based on the comprehensive
Montessori philosophy, practices, and curriculum. Its mission is to guide
each child in a thoughtfully prepared environment to become an independent
thinker, resourceful problem solver, and a positive contributing member in our
society by focusing on the development of the whole child. MAN’s success
is directly attributable to its commitment to Montessori, the hard-work and
dedication of its staff, administrators, and Board of Directors, and the
support of its families.
