CASA Preschool Program
Innovation Montessori Ocoee is a school created for children, by parents, using one of the most child-centered educational philosophies in the world – Montessori. Children are at the heart of everything we do and the best interests of our students are the basis of every decision we make.
Innovation Montessori Ocoee is a not-for-profit, in the truest sense of the word. Every penny we make is used to enhance our students’ educational experience. We are managed by a fully volunteer Board of Directors.
Charter schools are funded differently than district schools and, as a Montessori school, our expenses for staff and materials run higher than traditional schools. We bridge the gap with the help of our families. Innovation Montessori has a mandatory minimum 20 volunteer hour requirement per family, and we love to put our community’s talents to work for our school.
Our mission is to provide strong, authentic Montessori education in a Public-School setting. Being a charter school means that we are tuition free in grades K-8 and High School. It also means that we are required to teach state standards and participate in state mandated testing. Children must abide by the Orange County Public School’s (OCPS) code of conduct and we do have the same attendance policies, and follow the same calendar as OCPS.
