About our school

The Montessori Learning Center of Fort Walton Beach (MLC) has proudly served the area since 1978. We are a private Montessori-based school, 501(c)(3) non-profit, that accommodates a variety of different learning styles while fostering a lifelong hunger to learn. MLC resolves to provide each preschool and school-aged student with a Montessori-based education that rivals the best Montessori schools in the nation.

Guided by a robust demand in the local area for continued education in the Montessori model and profound support from generous local sponsors, our school began an expansion into lower elementary in 2017 that continues to present day.

As of the 2020-2021 school year, MLC offers grades Pre-K3 through 3rd grade. Our student body and staff has nearly doubled since expansion began three years ago, but our waitlist of prospective students continues to grow.
At our current location, we serve 81 children with incredibly diverse ethnic, cultural, religious and economic backgrounds.

The introduction of several scholarship programs two years ago has been a resounding success with nearly 30% of eligible school aged children benefiting from these programs to attend and thrive at our school.

Building a dedicated, tailor-made campus that would accommodate the Preschool and support our continued expansion through the 6th grade, is now our primary and urgent goal. With continued fundraising efforts, we are slated to open our new 10,000 sq/ft campus in Fall 2022! Become a part of this effort, and help our school serve the children of the FWB community!

Don't miss out!

Tickets will not be sold onsite. All dinner options must be reserved by 11:59pm April 4th.
