Educational excellence for children ages 3 – 15 since 1979.
EACMSI is committed to developing the hearts and minds of young people in nurturing and engaging environments designed with their developmental stage in mind.
We’ve consistently witnessed our students’ daily arrival brimming with enthusiasm and joy, ready to embrace whatever challenges and opportunities the day offers. Building connections with both peers and adults remains at the heart of our community, fostering enduring relationships.
From September to June, EACMSI becomes a bustling home to a diverse array of individuals—students, parents, faculty, and staff. Together, we forge a sense of belonging through purposeful interactions, with the goal of nurturing a conscientious and equitable society that empowers each member to excel in their endeavors.
Ensuring a safe learning environment for all.
EACMSI is a community of diverse cultures, languages, religions, and nationalities. The common denominator is an unshakeable faith in the giftedness of all people and their ability to realize their fullest potential in an environment where it is safe to explore with all of their senses – and to make mistakes. The Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca admits students of any gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national and ethnic origin, and religious beliefs.
