Montessori Institute of America (MIA) is an international organization made up of individual members and organizational members. MIA was founded in the U.S.A. in 1972.
MIA is a not-for-profit international organization dedicated to advancing Montessori Education in accordance with MIA’s Vision and Mission Statement. MIA sets standards and procedures to be followed by MIA certified Teacher Education Programs throughout the world. MIA awards Teacher certification to adults who have completed the approved training and practicum.
In addition to the educational focus on the intellectual, physical and social aspects of a child, Montessori Institute of America recognizes the importance of Dr. Montessori’s use of the term “spiritual”, when referring to the development of the child. MIA believes nurturing the spirit of the child is an important part of a curriculum. MIA is non-denominational.
MIA is a founding affiliate of the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE), an international accrediting agency for Montessori teacher education institutions and programs.
Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) is the international standard setting and accrediting body for Montessori teacher education all over the world in order to assure the public of the quality of a respective training program. Refer to their website for the complete list of accredited programs: https://www.macte.org/accredited-programs/#/
Certification programs accredited by MACTE have proven that their educators are competent and qualified to train adult learners. Accredited programs must also demonstrate their capacity to consistently monitor and improve the program's quality. A program that is accredited by MACTE is accountable for their quality and must thoroughly prepare graduates to become competent, caring and qualified Montessori professionals. The program provides evidence of this through a scholarly monograph and on-site verification to ensure that whatever was written in the scholarly monograph is consistent with what is being practiced in training.
Our 3-6 program has been accredited by MACTE since 2017 and we have submitted our application for the accreditation of our 0-3 program.
