A Message from our Founder

"The child is truly a miraculous being and this should be felt deeply by the educator."

-Maria Montessori


As a young child I always dreamed of teaching. I would gather all the neighborhood children together and for about three hours my bedroom would be instantly transformed into a classroom. The children would be seated in a row on the opposite side of a long table. Laid out on the table was a clock, an abundance of ditto sheets, and textbooks that I had collected from my teachers. Precisely every 40 minutes, the children would be instructed to change their thought processes to a different subject and any work left incomplete could be taken home for homework. What I began to witness was a group of faces exhibiting boredom, submission and fear. Ironically these were some of the same feelings I had everyday in most of my classes.

As a parent, I desired an educational environment where learning is fun, and an integral part of the curriculum, is a working knowledge of all academic disciplines rooted in Biblical truth. I longed for an environment where teachers partner with the parents in educating the child as well as an environment that exudes the Spirit of God, and my children would be saturated with the Holy Scriptures. In this amazing place, children are respected as individuals, race and gender are celebrated, and creativity, curiosity, and independence are cultivated in every child. This special place would also recognize that individuality is manifested for the enhancement of the Greater Community and respect would permeate the environment.

As founder and leader of Christian Montessori School of Lake Norman, I am committed to taking whatever steps necessary to provide an exceptional school, based on the educational methods pioneered by Dr. Maria Montessori and the Holy Scriptures. CMSLN’s mission is to provide an environment that will help the children internalize truth and prepare them for productive God-honoring lives as adults. At CMSLN there is a commitment to a close partnership between home and school, academic accountability and an innovative program that will lead students to develop extraordinary levels of personal responsibility, independence, and self-confidence.

Thank you again for your interest in CMSLN. Enjoy our website and I look forward to partnering with you in nurturing the maturation of all your child’s God–given talents and abilities.

God Bless,
Sonya A. Curry

I hope you guys are having a wonderful start to the school year.  Sydney and Jeremiah are doing well.  I thought I would share with you some wonderful news, Sydney was baptized last weekend!  She had to go through a baptism interview at church a month ago and she passed with flying colors.  She was so excited.  Below is the video (its only a minute long).  I also attached a picture of the get along gang prior to the baptism.

But I just wanted to share because you guys were an integral part in her early Christian walk.  I thank God for you guys helping to raise my children with solid Christian principles.   Thanks and hopefully I will see you guys at the next Spirit Night.  You didn’t think that you guys would get rid of us did you?!

Thanks and you guys have a great weekend!

I want everyone involved in the young man’s success to know that we are thankful for his strong foundation.

Folks always ask how he could be a senior and be so much younger than his classmates, and we reply “Lake Norman Day School”. We are well, and he has about 15 great offer for college! We thank God and those involved from the beginning!
