Our school opened its doors in 2011 in the beautiful and historic Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. The school opened with two classrooms, a toddler room and a preschool room, and has grown to include a second pre-school room.

Our mission is to provide a safe, beautiful and authentic Montessori learning environment; to serve an inclusive community of multicultural and economically diverse families; and to support children in becoming confident, independent, and compassionate members of society.

Cathedral Hill Montessori School is fully recognized with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and AMI/USA. A school accredited through AMI confirms a commitment to Montessori principles put faithfully into practice and an assurance that a quality of standard is maintained. CHMS is one of only 15 schools in Minnesota to earn this high distinction of quality Montessori education!
