What type of educational program does Casa Esperanza offer?
Casa Esperanza Montessori, founded in 2003, offers a unique Spanish, dual-language, private preschool for children ages 3-4 years old and a public charter school for kindergarten through eighth grade. We provide a multicultural, hands-on-learning environment with a focus on responsibility, self-reflection, graceful and courteous behavior, and community.
As a public school, Casa follows the NC Standard Course of Study (NCSOS). We teach the Montessori curriculum and Spanish language as well as additional elements prescribed by the NCSCOS. Both of our language options, Enrichment and Immersion, allow students an opportunity to earn high school credits in foreign language. Our educational program has consistently produced creative, independent learners, and global-minded problem solvers.
The academic calendar begins in late July and concludes by mid June each year. Our students and teachers enjoy three, two-week intersession vacations: fall break, winter break, and spring break. We offer childcare before and after school, as well as during the fall and spring intersessions. All families are welcome at Casa!
