Counterpane School is one of very few Montessori programs in the United States that extends the Montessori philosophy from preschool through high school. The school is small, individualizing, non-graded until Upper School, and strictly college preparatory. Counterpane’s campus is on 14 wooded acres with organic gardens and farm animals.
Counterpane is dedicated to the purest Montessori education and engages only teachers trained by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) or the American Montessori Society (AMS) at the primary and elementary level. Counterpane is a member of the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES), and is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission (GAC).
