Daycroft's Academic Philosophy and Programs

our academic philosopHy

Daycroft has enjoyed 50 years of excellence as a student-centered, learning community that values all members, celebrates diversity and the innate goodness of all.

Inspired by the traditions and beliefs, values and practices of Maria Montessori, Daycroft values creativity and collaboration in our students. We believe students will learn at their best when they are intrinsically motivated and operate within a spirit of independence and responsibility.  We emphasize respect for all and personal reflection from within. We desire students to be agents of their own learning; with engagement in what they learn and with empathy for each other. 

With low student-to-teacher ratios, highly skilled and caring instructors, and determined administrators and staff, we believe that we create a strong base for our students to go on their own pathways to peace, as well as partners in the broader community.
