Welcome to SVMS. We are building a sustainable and vital environment for children to actualize their full human potential and bring about peace in the world.

About SVMS

SVMS is a non-profit, private Montessori School licensed by the state of North Carolina with 2 locations 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.
