Welcome to Indiana Montessori Academy

Indiana Montessori Academy is recognized through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), and we are the only school in the Indianapolis area to have this certification.

Indiana Montessori Academy's school environment is a wonderful opportunity for your child's start on his/her educational journey. Giving your child a Montessori education is a gift you and your child will embrace now, during his/her pre-school years, as well as for many years to come. Over 100 years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori viewed education as an aide to life. At Indiana Montessori Academy (IMA); children foster, develop and build many life long skills including:

  • A love of learning
  • The ability to concentrate (focus) on the task at hand
  • The ability to think for him/herself (independence)
  • A solid foundation of development: socially, academically and emotionally
  • A strong sense of community

Following your child’s natural ability to learn, Indiana Montessori Academy allows him/her the unique opportunity to achieve these life-long milestones. Through his/her experience and education, the child is creating our future.

IMA is located in the heart of the Village of WestClay in Carmel, Indiana (a suburb of Indianapolis) and lovingly partners with families in Carmel, Westfield, Zionsville, Indianapolis, Fishers and surrounding areas.
