Cathedral Hill Montessori School opened its doors in 2011 in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. Its founders, Whitney and Andrew Blessing, worked to restore a lovely Victorian mansion and former boarding school on the property to a bed and breakfast and Cathedral Hill Montessori School. The school opened with two classrooms, a Toddler Community and a Children’s House, and has grown to include a Children’s House.
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!
