Story

StoryThe Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene, known to our parents as “MAB” was founded by Beth and Bart Theriot (mother and son) in 2001. We remain the sole owners of the Academy and are devoted to maintaining an authentic Montessori environment for all of our students. We are a full member school of the American Montessori Society (AMS) offering a true Montessori environment to children age 10 weeks through 10 years. Beth and Bart also own and operate the Northern Virginia Montessori Institute, located on MAB’s campus, which is the only AMS affiliated Montessori early childhood teacher education program in Northern Virginia.

MAB is located at 20300 Bowfonds Street, just off Belmont Ridge Rd. with easy access to Ashburn, Leesburg, as well as surrounding communities via The Greenway and Route 7. Belmont Greene is the first Traditional Neighborhood Development in Loudoun County, designed for mixed generational neighborhoods. It incorporates small parks and village shops all connected by footpaths and sidewalks and is an ideal location for a school which utilizes hands-on learning for subjects such as science and nature.

Our facility was specifically designed by Beth Theriot using her 30 years of Montessori teaching experience. The school building is over 15,000 square feet of open, bright and spacious area and includes a gymnasium, 6 primary classrooms, 3 infant toddler rooms and an elementary wing. Our 3 acre wooded grounds offer two playgrounds, garden boxes and a nature trail, maintained by our elementary students.
