Penn-Mont Academy – Join Us As We Celebrate 60 Years of Montessori Education!
In 1961 Aline and Gerald Wolf wanted to start a Montessori school. They set out to learn about this method of educating and brought in teachers already trained in Montessori while they worked to educate more teachers in the method. Penn-Mont Academy, first known as the “Wolf Academy” began out of their home. Today, after a name change, several building changes, and a newly constructed school dedicated in 2001, “Penn-Mont Academy” is celebrating 60 years of Montessori education. Did you know that Penn-Mont was the first Montessori school in Pennsylvania and the third in the nation!?!
Please join us as we start off the school year celebrating our 60th anniversary! We will be holding three separate events. See details below for information about each event.
