Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Academy

A Montessori Children’s House

The mission of Saint Dominic’s Academy is to provide a comprehensive education for our children in body, mind and spirit, based on the precepts and teachings of the Catholic Church and established in accordance with all of the applicable regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. While working in cooperation with families, our program implements the teaching and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, providing an environment that stimulates the child’s natural curiosity and prepares him/her to become an independent, self-reliant and compassionate human being.


Registrations for the 2015-2016 school year are now being accepted for Primary (ages 3 – 6) and Elementary (ages 6 – 9) Montessori classrooms. Please download Saint Dominic’s Academy_regform_2015 and mail it to the address provided. Please contact us if you want to visit the school



“It is possible to see a clear analogy between

the Shepherd in the Church and that of the

prudent and generous educator in the Montessori

method, who with tenderness, with love and with

a wise evaluation of gifts, knows how to discover

and bring to light the most hidden virtues and

capacities of the child.”

– Saint Pope John XXIII
