Our Vision

Empowering our students to become lifelong contributors to society by being creative innovators, global thinkers, effective and respectful communicators, with the confidence to make a difference in the world.

Our Mission

Xavier University Montessori Lab School is an interwoven community of parents, students, and educators steeped in high-quality Montessori pedagogy. This community cultivates within each student a passion for learning and provides the tools to fuel the student's innate quest for knowledge. Through deep integrated curriculum, students synthesize ideas, develop critical thinking skills and nurture relationships with the materials and each other; thereby becoming independent lifelong learners with a growth mindset as their compass. These confident young global citizens go out into the community knowing who they are and are ignited to enhance humanity.

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Montessori education is founded on the respect and reverence of the child. This method of education nurtures and cultivates the unique qualities each child possesses through engaging, meaningful, multi sensory lessons, activities, and materials. Embedded in our teaching practices is inquiry, wonderment, discovery, and joy; children are engaged learners constructing their knowledge and applying it in their lives.

As part of our mission we educate a diverse community of learners thereby enriching our experiences and appreciation for one another as well as celebrating our individuality. We are most proud of our students and their demonstrated kindness and respect toward one another.

The Xavier Montessori Lab School is nationally and internationally recognized for its standard of Montessori education. The holistic education of the child is also dependent on the partnership with our families. Teachers, parents, administration, and staff collaborate on activities, events, and functions to enrich our students learning and support our spirit of community.

Xavier University and the Xavier University Montessori Lab School are academic communities committed to equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, race, religion, handicap, or national origin. The American Montessori Society, as well as the State of Ohio, accredits the Lab School.
