Discovering Truth and Beauty

Igniting passion, curiosity, and purpose

We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about Montessori education and our school. Ours is a vibrant community of engaged families, dedicated faculty and staff, and children from birth through sixth grade. We are a new and young school. We have been serving  families in the Steubenville area since 2017 and yet we have grown and flourished because of the dedication of our families, staff and Holy Spirit.

The Montessori method is designed to support the individual needs and interests of your child in a dynamic, hands-on learning environment, with materials and lessons that ignite passion, curiosity, and purpose. Our students emerge as independent, critical thinkers and productive collaborators, prepared for whatever the future may bring, and whatever future they wish to pursue. Dr. Maria Montessori said, “A child’s work is to create the person she/he will become.” We are honored and proud to help each student who passes through our doors to do just that.

We warmly invite you to explore our website, join us for a parent information session, tour our beautiful campus, observe in our classrooms, and call us with questions. We encourage you to see for yourself all that a Mary Seat of Wisdom Montessori education has to offer.

We look forward to meeting you and your child!

When our students go out into the world on trips or for service work, we often hear back how impressed our hosts were with the students’ work ethic and their questions. What is the difference? Our students are allowed to be curious, creative, daring, and do more, dive deeper, and explore to their heart’s content. We think it’s worth it
