St. Catherine University is where Montessori educators from around the world earn graduate degrees and certificates that advance their careers — and their profession. In response to the needs of the Montessori community, St. Catherine University is committed to advanced Montessori studies that will support credentialed Montessori teachers in taking their next steps as teachers and leaders.
Advanced learning for Montessori educators
Through St. Kate's, educators build on their Montessori experience and learn skills for improving learning in their classrooms. They join a supportive learning community dedicated to innovation and authentic Montessori practice. And — through their own research — they shape best practices for the next generation of Montessori educators. They become leaders in their profession.
Advance with a master’s degree
In the online AM2 master's program, St. Kate's recognizes your prior teacher training (for your AMS, AMI or other accredited credential) and offers you a path to complete your master's through a one-weekend learning experience and nine months of online study.
