Who We Are


Cheri Bobo: Director of Admissions

Montessori Academy of Spartanburg is located in the Historic Hampton Heights neighborhood near downtown Spartanburg, SC.  The school maintains and fosters an authentic Montessori education for children from 8 weeks-8th grade.  We have gardens, a greenhouse and two BRAND NEW playgrounds!  The main building houses the classrooms for Infants, Pre-Primary and Primary classes.  There is also a multi-purpose room, which serves as the art and music room.  The Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary classrooms are in the “Green House”, a charming turn of the century bungalow located next door.

Montessori Academy of Spartanburg had very humble beginnings.  It started off in 1980 in a one-room class at the Spartanburg YMCA. After operating successfully for many years, it moved to its current home on Spring Street.  In 2004 the school expanded its Main Building, adding an extra classroom as well as the multi-purpose room.  In 2006, the school purchased a historic house adjacent to the school, and began using it as its Elementary School.

Montessori Academy of Spartanburg holds credentials with Montessori Educational Programs International, Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education and the American Montessori Society.  We have faithfully served Spartanburg families for over 30 years, and we look forward to providing a true Montessori education to Spartanburg children for many years to come.
