Make a gift to our Bright Futures Fund

The 2024 Bright Futures Gala was a beautiful celebration of Montessori education and our school community. During the event, we premiered this video about how Montessori prepares children for the future. 

Thanks to Summer Hennessy, Hanna Lee-Kleb, Emily Kolassa, and all of the volunteer effort that made this year's gala exceed all expectations. Jen Lake and Ryan Sullivan co-emceed the event and special remarks were made by Michele Shane, Head of School. The gorgeous backdrop of the Cathedral Barn, music by the amazing Chris Sterr, and Modern Bird's dinner made the evening special and memorable. The party ended with dancing and rocking music by The Timebombs! Special thanks to everyone who made a gift in support of our Bright Futures Fund. We are beyond grateful for the support of our parents, alumni families, and the greater community.
