  1. Where do CASA students come from?

    Our families come from the surrounding areas including Marietta, East and West Cobb, Vinings, Sandy Springs, Kennesaw, Roswell, and Smyrna.

    We are conveniently located off the Ga-120 Loop, near the I-75 and 285 Connector. We serve families who live and work all over the Atlanta and Marietta area.


  2. How are the teachers trained?

    Each of our primary and elementary guides has a minimum 4 year college degree and has attended a rigorous graduate program at an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) training center. The training program includes over 1200 hours of education, observation and student teaching prior to certification. Guides are members in good standing of AMI. Many of our staff members and teachers also have advanced degrees from educational institutions around the globe.

    Cumulatively, our staff members have over 100 years teaching experience. As a well-established school with a long history of excellence, CASA Montessori attracts and retains Montessori trained guides who are dedicated to and passionate about the education of children.


  3. Is the school based on any religion?

    Montessori curriculum is religiously neutral and does not conflict with any religions. Our staff and students are diverse in both culture and religion. CASA children experience and learn about cultural and religious traditions from around the world in a respectful and objective manner through various cultural celebrations scheduled throughout the school year.


  4. Do you have therapists or tutors available for learning differences?

    Yes. CASA has some on-site and after school resources for students with learning differences and can also recommend resources in the community to address your child's needs. We are committed to serving our families with resources to nurture your child's full development.


  5. Do you offer before and after school care?

    CASA offers early drop off for Primary and Elementary students beginning at 7:30 a.m. We also offer a Stay & Play program for students (ages 5 and up) Monday through Friday from 3:00-6:00 p.m.


  6. What does it mean to be a nonprofit school?

    CASA's nonprofit status means that tuition is kept as low as possible to give a wider socioeconomic base of families the opportunity for a Montessori education. Much of the schools added enhancements and extra programs are only possible due to the generosity of CASA parents and alumni who donate funds and volunteer their time and talents. As CASA is classified as 501-C, financial gifts that are given to the school (above and beyond tuition and fees) are considered tax-deductible donations that are used to enhance the Montessori experience and multi-cultural events campus wide.


  7. How will my child transition from CASA into another school?

    A child graduating from our Primary Program and entering another private or public elementary school should experience a smooth transition. The early years of preparation spent in a Montessori environment boosts a child's self-confidence and independence, as well as prepare him for any academic challenge. Most graduates enter another elementary school at a higher than average academic level, and can navigate their new school environment very well.

    A child graduating from our Elementary Program can expect to transition similarly. Alumni, parents, and teachers from several private and public schools have given positive testimony to how well the children adjust and in many cases excel in their new schools.
