Butler Montessori is an AMI (Association Montessori International) accredited school for children ages 18 months through eighth grade, situated on a beautiful 22-acre rural campus.
Butler supports the development of the whole child through academics, music, arts, and physical education including our unique equestrian program. Butler Montessori guides children toward independence and social responsibility creating the basis for education as a lifelong process based on a solid academic foundation.

Please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders may be picked up Tuesday, Nov 24, 3:00-3:45. Peach pie- $8; Crabapple pumpkin soup- $12 (2 quarts ; serves 4 to 6 people )

Our Annual Giving is underway. We are hoping for 100% participation from current families. The Admin Team is leading with 100% participation!
Each week we will feature a few frequently asked questions about Annual Giving:
- Students already pay tuition, why have Annual Giving?
Butler Montessori is committed to providing an exceptional Montessori education while maintaining tuition at a level that is affordable for a diverse population. Therefore, tuition alone does not cover all of the school’s operating expenses.
In lieu of raising tuition, we conduct the Friends & Family Annual Giving Campaign. Annual Giving bridges the gap between tuition and the true cost of a Butler Montessori education – think of it as the “tax deductible” portion of the Butler students’ education.
Annual Giving also provides alumni, extended families, neighbors, equestrian friends, campers, teachers and staff, Trustees and special friends with an opportunity to financially support Butler Montessori.
- Can I designate where my Annual Giving gift is used?
Of course! Please let us know if you would like your gift to support a specific program or other area of interest, such as: enhancing the arts programs, the Intermediates’ Costa Rica trip, improving the Equestrian facility, or other campus renovation and stewardship.

A reminder that this party is for adults only. This is not a family event, but an opportunity for parents to have a night out to socialize and relax with the Butler parent and staff community! Students in the Intermediate class are available for babysitting that night, and other nights as well. They are working to raise money for their trip to Costa Rica, planned for April, 2016. A list is available at the front desk.
