Is your school or district making the transition to the Science of Reading [SOR]? That transition can be overwhelming or intimidating when teachers don’t have the information, experience, or resources that they need to experience success.
If you are NEW to SOR and you are looking for a STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH that can help you make the transition to evidence-based reading practices smooth and successful, then this highly practical session is for YOU!⁣

Join experienced SOR teachers, literacy experts, and Sounder & Friends® co-creators Heather Kenny, Ph.D., and Laura Robbins, M.Ed., for a fun and informative day that will lower your stress level and empower you to provide your students with highly effective reading instruction!⁣

Hi Beautiful parents! We have a 3 year old and are looking for recommendations on summer camps or programs that might mimic what we love about RMS. Any suggestions?
Please consider joining the RMS parents page! We have insider info and its a great place to post about the school and connect with other parents.
I am trying to contact the head of your montessori school or director of your Communications/Marketing Department. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) I would greatly appreciate it!

Last week our vet came out to check on our goats and speak to our Elementary students, who had a chance to ask questions and see what a goat sonogram looks like! The great news? Dulce is pregnant!

Ever wonder what 100 cubic yards of mulch looks like? We were curious, too! So we decided to use it as covering for our playground this year so that our students and families can enjoy another play space.

Read about what the future holds for RMS!


2022 marks the 20 year anniversary of Renaissance Montessori School and we are marking this milestone with a year of celebrations. History timelines have always been among the favorite work of the children in our school so it is only fitting that we celebrate with a timeline of the history of RMS.

The history of RMS would be nothing without our families so we need your to help us make our timeline. Here's what to do:
Email us at [email protected] with the date you started at RMS and a picture of your family or child(ren) from that year and we'll place you on our timeline.
If you are local, give us a call at 703-368-4442 and stop by with your picture (4 x 6 or smaller) to put it on the timeline yourself.
We are also looking for full school or class pictures from the following years so please email them if you have them! 2003-4; 2005-6; 2006-7; 2007-8; 2008-9; 2012-13; 2013-14
We'll be posting our progress on Facebook and Instagram so make sure you follow us to see as it grows.


We arrived back from the weekend to find two new guests! We are hoping for duckings.

Out gardens are starting to produce some delicious looking veggies! Can you guess what all of these plants are?!


Last week we had special visitors to our school, two gentle cows! The children got to meet a full grown and baby cow throughout the morning. Dr. Montessori observed that "Children have an anxious concern for living beings, and the satisfaction of this instinct fills them with delight."

Our elementary students have been taking trips to visit and pray for the deceased over the last couple of weeks, a spiritual work of mercy, as the Church especially remembers the deceased during the month of November.

Striving to be the best in Catholic Montessori

Renaissance Montessori School is a non-profit Montessori school located in Nokesville, Virginia. Founded in 2002, we offer an exceptional educational experience to children ages 12 months to 15 years.

The advantage of the Montessori method is that it harnesses the child’s natural inclinations towards learning and self-improvement. In order to accomplish this, it seeks to provide the child with freedom — a freedom acquired through well-ordered action.

Taking this approach liberates the child’s physical and intellectual energies, but in the construct of an ordered environment. Children learn by doing and are lovers of purposeful work, spontaneously chosen and carried out with profound joy.

Montessori education attends to the total development of the child – social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual.
