Who We Are

We believe children are born with the need to explore and discover with the strong desire to learn…

At Joseph Bruno Montessori Academy, we treat the child’s curiosity and creativity with great care allowing them to explore their interests from an early age. We provide the kinds of lessons that make learning exciting and stimulate the child’s desire to find out more. Lessons are given to small groups of students or even individually so that they can understand the concepts presented. Our students are our first priority, and we strive to provide them with opportunities to reach their fullest potential.

School Operations

JBMA will be closed indefinitely for the 2019-2020 school year.

We will continue to stay up to date on the health and safety conditions across the country and in our state.  We will also follow any advice and guidance passed down by the Governor of Alabama and by the Alabama Department of Education.  The health and safety of the entire JBMA community is at the center of all decisions moving forward.

In the event of a school closing or change to operating hours, this box will change to red. Please read through our procedures for school closings and inclement weather by clicking below.
