Our Mission Statement:

Leelanau Montessori Public School Academy nurtures the whole child in a prepared environment based on respect, individuality, a love of learning, and freedom with responsibility.

Welcome to the Leelanau Montessori Public School Academy

The Leelanau Montessori Public School Academy is a charter school serving Leelanau and Grand Traverse county from Suttons Bay, Michigan.  Our whole-child approach to learning nurtures the mind, body, and spirit in multi-age classrooms guided by highly qualified staff.  We offer tuition-free public elementary programs, and tuition-based preschool programs.

Our Montessori-certified teachers endorse educator Maria Montessori's success-oriented approach to learning. The Montessori "method" stresses joyful learning, discovery and creativity in a natural mixed-age group setting (like the society our students will live in as adults).  It fosters personal bonds with

nature and reinforces those bonds with real-life problem-solving exercises.

 You can download an application here and return to school via mail or email. 

The Montessori program has been in Suttons Bay since 1984. It includes toddler, primary, and elementary programs. For more information, give us a call at (231) 271-8609 or send us an email at:  

We are located on the the Suttons Bay Public Schools campus, at 310 South Elm Street in Suttons Bay, Michigan. Look for our Leelanau Montessori signs.
