Enrollment‎ > ‎


Parents choose to enroll at Montessori Regional Charter School for a number of reasons. We are proud to be a part of the Charter School community and to be able to offer Parents and Children, in the Erie Region, a choice in deciding what is best for their education. 

Since becoming a public Charter School in 2004-2005, the school has been growing at a fast, but controlled pace and will continue to expand over the next several years. Lead by a Board of Trustees and guided by a faculty that hold both Pennsylvania teaching credentials and rigorous additional Montessori training, the school is committed to the highest quality academic preparation that the Erie region has to offer.
