The Boyd School

The Boyd School

We are an accredited school located in Fairfax & Loudoun Counties, VA providing authentic Montessori Education from infancy - 8th grade, since 1994.

At The Boyd School, we embrace a Montessori philosophy of education and create a warm, welcoming and secure place for children to challenge themselves and excel. In this environment, children develop their intellectual, social and physical abilities and talents to their fullest.

Mission: The Boyd School is a learning community founded on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our mission is to work in partnership with parents to guide students in developing all facets of their growing personalities - academic, social, intellectual, moral and aesthetic - from infancy through adolescence. The Boyd School takes as it's goals to: Provide a solid academic foundation utilizing the philosophy, methods and materials developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Create a welcoming, secure and nurturing environment in which children have the opportunity to cultivate a positive attitude towards learning and satisfying personal relationships. Encourage individual abilities so that each student may become a creative, independent thinker with a strong self-image. Help the child form a personally meaningful understanding of the world that is balanced by mutual respect for the integrity of others. The Boyd School is accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The Boyd School follows the teaching and research of Dr. Maria Montessori as the educational philosophy of the school. We always attempt to keep a clear vision and ask ourselves what is best for the children. Children are the focus of our school. A sense of humor, the ability to be flexible and lots of hard work are critical to the success of our program. With teachers, staff, parents and children always keeping the vision of Montessori, our school is a vital and growing environment.
