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.
Our primary purpose as a school is to prepare our children to be engaged learners and compassionate, responsible citizens of the world. We nurture curiosity and passion for learning at the same time we cultivate each child’s sense of care for each other and the world. Ultimately, the pursuit of knowledge and discovery in this manner leads a child to utilize their gifts to become positive contributors to their communities. This is what we mean when we refer to “holistic education.” At Mountain Sun, we serve the whole child’s developmental needs: cognitively, naturally, creatively, emotionally, and socially.
Mountain Sun Community School’smission is to cultivate each student’s natural curiosity and love of learning through a challenging academic curriculum grounded in mutual respect and a sense of belonging. We recognize each student’s unique potential and nurture their passions and abilities through a balance of direct instruction, collaborative and independent study, hands-on experiences in and out of the classroom, and service learning.
