“Exceptional Schooling For The Formative Years”
LDVA was founded in 1983, on principles inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and Maria Montessori. In keeping with the concept of Plato’s Academy, the school embraces the Montessori methodology and a unique “Thinking Like Leonardo” approach to learning. A rich and well-rounded program of studies along with a nurturing philosophy of education help to nurture the growth of lifelong learners and independent thinkers. Grade 8 graduates are well-prepared for high school and the future. The school features CCMA accredited Casa (a licensed preschool for 2.5 to 6 year olds) and Lower Elementary Montessori programs, and an authentic Italian immersion preschool.
