My services include a Montessori Playgroup from pregnancy through the age of three. This is a parent participation weekly class with 90-minute sessions which run for 8 weeks, along with a discussion group outside of class for parents covering a variety of topics. Over the course of the 8-weeks parents learn the art of observation, using an Observation Journal created for this experience. They interact with their child, while also observing myself, an experienced Montessori teacher, as I interact and introduce activities to the children. My services also include Montessori in the Home Consultation, and I am also a Birth Doula, so I bring many years of experience with pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum to families who choose this support. I have been a certified Montessori teacher for 27 years, and a Birth Doula , childbirth educator, and Assistant Midwife since 1990. I also offer Personal Teacher and Parent Mentorship, Positive Discipline workshops and groups, and birthing workshops.
Ascend Micro School partners with parents to provide an engaging, learner-driven education rooted in compassion for our local community and the people in it. We aim to embrace the strengths of the curious, driven, passionate, gifted students we serve and empower them through highly individualized instruction, place-based education, hands-on learning, and character development so that each child can strengthen the gifts that are uniquely theirs and vital to our world.
A child’s education should reach far beyond academic standards. By the time students move to adulthood, they should be able to thrive as a member of society. We believe the purpose of education is to equip students to be lifelong learners and compassionate citizens while preparing them to live an enriched, fulfilling life as they create positive change in their community.
We are a homeschool hybrid, also referred to as an independent school. We fall under both private school and homeschool laws. Students attend 1-3 days a week and are homeschooled the other days.

Boone Prairie offers a classical foundation, delivering the education in an engaging way. Our model is different from typical schools hybrids in that we place students on ability for math, writing/reading. All new students 3rd-8th test into math and provide a writing sample. For example we have had 1st graders test at level 3 math and 6th graders test at Algebra level as well as level 3. The primary goal is to have all students ready for Algebra 1 by 9th grade, while students who are high ability or start the program at a younger age will often be finished with 2 HS credits by the start of 9th grade. Students without a classical background start in Latin A regardless of grade level. Classes are outdoors as much as possible through the fall and spring. Science and History are offered on a 4 year rotation. This allows families to learn together across grades for History/Geography/Art/Music, yet at the students appropriate grade level. Leadership,entrepreneurial skills, integrity/character are foundational as well.
Chesterfield Community Preschool will begin its inaugural school year on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. We are a dedicated, grassroots, Montessori, micro-school committed to guiding children in an authentic community atmosphere. We believe in an affordable, inclusive, respectful, child-focused education system and aim to provide an environment that meets the needs of the families we serve.
Our year-round, half-day preschool program is designed for children ages three to six years old. Our school days are Monday through Friday, 8am-12pm with a break each quarter. Class size is limited to twelve students and three faculty, providing a sense of community, partnership and individualization.
Our school is located within a Christian church and we are proud to share our faith with the children in our classroom, however, part of building an authentic and diverse community means also celebrating the different cultures, customs and religions of the families enrolled.
Our goal is to maintain affordable tuition in an effort to preserve the spirit of Montessori education. Tuition is only $500/month per child and requires an annual commitment. We operate with rolling admissions and will accept applications year-round, adding to our wait-list as needed. Please contact us for application information.
Since 2016 Chronos Academy has been creating education the hard way, from scratch. The founders of San Anselmo's new K-8 micro-school, Daniel and Celeste Ezell set out to create a curriculum in their lab school in the same fashion Elon Musk engineered an orbital rocket: from first principles. “We have this great timeline of history we wanted to give to our students… and a bunch of other subjects we know they need to succeed…” Was there a way to bring those together into a seamless whole? The inspiration they needed appeared on the bookshelf at an AirBNB weekend in Guerneville. Daniel flipped through the pages of The Timetables of History. “Everything is in here! Why not teach everything like this—in order.“
Each week, Chronos curriculum consists of lessons in each subject integrated to a time and place. These week-long lessons add up to a four-year tour through the history of humanity and our innovations over the past 10,000 years. “We’ve implemented the best of our neighboring pedagogues: narrative from Waldorf, individual concrete exploration from Montessori, unit studies from public classrooms, memory work from classical models—and focused on grit, curiosity and maturity as our motivation. We are helping to grow wonderful people,” Celeste beamed.
Welcome to the next chapter of CTL- bringing world class education to the globe through the development of a hybrid eco-system of online and in person education clubhouses.
CTL has a proven track record with 100% of its graduates accepted to top rate universities in the US. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the single school site is ready to branch out and engage the world.
Covid 19 proved that learning does not have to be geographically bound. Therefore CTL is launching its Global online academic secondary program (grades 6-12) to offer those not located in Abuja its fully accredited, project based, Advanced Placement aligned American education program. Students graduating from this program will be eligible to apply to universities around the world. As enrollment increases, in-person education clubhouses will open to accommodate the CTL scholars where they can go and co-learn and be part of a 3 dimensional community while connected via their virtual platform for the academic content.
The vision of CTL is to develop passionate scholars, global citizens and servant leaders who are equipped to be agents of positive change in their communities.
