Welcome to the Montessori Academies of Carrollwood and South Tampa!
We thank you for considering our schools as you make the very important decision of determining who will fulfill your child’s social, physical, and academic needs. Please be assured that we take seriously our role in a child’s total development and seek to foster a sense of “second family,” in which the child will flourish in an atmosphere of love, protection, peace, and successful personal achievements!
