Welcome to SVMS. We are a diverse, authentic Montessori educational community that is built on the principles of: intrinsic motivation, self-directed learning and social responsibility. We strive to develop each student's full potential: physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.
SVMS is a non-profit, private Montessori School licensed by the state of North Carolina and is located in Black Mountain. SVMS focuses on the Montessori approach to child-centered learning by creating an environment where children feel secure, supported, and stimulated. We believe in the child: in each dream, in each mind and in each individual, through nurturing confidence, self-motivation and cooperation we promote community awareness and enthusiasm for life-long learning. We wish to help children become individuals who respect themselves, other beings and the world in which they live. Learn More
