Maria Montessori believed the most important thing we can do to support young learners is to provide the tools and environment that plant the seeds of independence and self-confidence. A sense of belonging is essential in order to take full advantage of such a thoughtfully prepared classroom.

RIGHT WHERE YOU BELONG, the Chiaravalle 2020 Benefit, will be an evening of friends, philanthropy, and community to raise funds that help ensure a Montessori education is more accessible for students. This year Chiaravalle offered nearly $1 million in tuition assistance to 30% of our current families.

Our goal for the evening is to raise $130,000 to support this critical part of our mission. We can reach our goal with help of our entire community. There are multiple opportunities and something for everyone.
