Community Partnership

Mountain Sun Community School serves children ages three through ninth grade 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.

Mountain Sun Community School’s mission 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.

We are grateful to offer community partnerships allowing your business or organization an opportunity to become a valuable sponsor of Mountain Sun Community School. As a nonprofit, independent school we rely on our greater community for support. As a way to show our appreciation, and direct traffic to our community partners, we are offering a community sponsorship from September through June of the academic year.

At a membership level of Poplar, Oak, Dogwood, Rhododendron, or Laurel you have the potential to reach more than 5000+ people who visit Mountain Sun Community School’s events, social media, general advertising and marketing, and website. Your involvement will not only support transformative learning experiences for our students and families but will also help deepen our impact on the greater community.
