Welcome to Mountain Sun!

Mountain Sun Community School serves children age three through middle school in a carefully prepared environment with specially trained teachers using Montessori principles along with other complementary educational practices. Mountain Sun is Brevard’s only independent school and was formed as a non-profit parent-driven effort to create a caring holistic community school that cultivates each child’s passion and unique abilities. Our goal is to preserve each child’s natural curiosity and love of learning at the same time fostering respect and responsibility for themselves, their community, and the natural world. Lots of time spent outdoors, small multi-age classrooms and exceptional educators create a nurturing environment where each child is challenged and inspired to be their best: academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

“Mountain Sun has wisdom and heart at the core and has been so instrumental in putting a smile back on my son’s face while re-engaging him with a tremendous love of learning. The field trips are meaningful, as are the service learning projects which truly provide a hands-on learning experience that is so rich! He has matured in front of my eyes and has gained a sense of independence and responsibility with his work that feels really good.”

“Mountain Sun Community School truly commits to educating the Whole Child. Every teacher intimately understands EACH child in her classroom. She understands how they learn, how they play, and what their strengths and challenges are. This translates into an ideal learning environment where the child feels completely understood and supported in the journey of learning and education. I have 2 children at Mountain Sun and they both absolutely love going to school.”

“Mountain Sun Community School is a beacon in our community for educating a child. In addition to focusing on teaching our children the logical subjects of most schools, Mountain Sun goes way beyond to teach the whole child. Learning is a dynamic process, and Mountain Sun honors the excitement and freedom of education, as well as the fascination and growth of childhood.”

“Our daughter has attended MSCS for 4 years, and she is now a second grader. We have watched her thrive academically and socially. She LOVES to go to school and is excited about learning! They start with the preschoolers, working with their natural inclination to explore, and that continues on into the upper grades. After 4 years at MSCS, I am still amazed to see how the teachers and students work together to create this peaceful, collaborative learning environment.”
