• A personalized, developmentally-appropriate approach - starting early:

Beginning a lifelong love of learning from 3- or 4-years old, our students advance at their own pace, with inquiry and lessons individually and in small groups, using rich materials, and two teachers in each class - all inspiring your child's sense of purpose in learning. Learn more about Montessori.  

  • The Attachment Village: 

A foundation of love empowers high expectations when the school works closely with families and the community.   

  • Expand your student’s horizons: 

Libertas' Montessori education, supported by Core Knowledge, reflects the liberal arts ethos: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. In addition to all conventional school subjects for college and career readiness, students are immersed in literature and poetry, nature study and gardening, foreign language, music, and visual art. 

  • A school culture of virtue: 

Libertas is a peaceful and orderly environment. Our goal is for children to develop habits of excellence (virtue). We practice grace and courtesy. We are inspired by great men and women from our community, history and literature.

  • Rigorous education through the craftsmanship of teaching: 

Our founding team has decades of experience in teaching, leadership, and service in effective public and private schools and community organizations. We know that knowledgeable and passionate teachers, who continually refine their practice, can dramatically improve the achievement of children subjected to educational inequality.

An attachment village of families and the community:

Children need to be surrounded by adults who know, love, and expect the best from them.  Libertas collaborates with families, faith communities, wraparound service providers, and other neighborhood pillars to foster a nurturing village of attachment and support. Parents participate in everything from chaperoning trips, to reading to children, to helping make crafts and materials for classrooms, to advocating with public officials on important policy matters. Our Attachment Village includes some of these important community partners, leaders, and supporters:

  • Frayser Exchange Club

  • Lifeline to Success / Blight Patrol

  • Le Bonheur Children's Hospital

  • University of Tennessee Health Center

  • Youth Villages / Anaya

  • Memphis Education Fund

  • Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris; Shelby County Commissioner Tami Sawyer; TN State Representative Mark White
