Our school opened its doors in 2011 in the beautiful and historic Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. Since then, we have provided over one hundred families with an exceptional Montessori experience. In 2019, out of a shared commitment to equity and accessibility, CHMS expanded its mission to serve a broader community of families.

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 standard of quality is maintained. CHMS is one of only 15 schools in Minnesota to earn this high distinction of quality Montessori education!
