We are currently accepting children aged 5 to 10 years old. As our school's original founding learners grow older each year, we will progressively extend our enrollment to encompass middle school and eventually high school! 🚀

For ages 5 to 7

Montessori K-1st Studio

Harness curiosity

Inspired by Maria Montessori's method and Acton Academy principles, our young heroes get to experience self-paced hands-on learning, age-appropriate discussion, and ample outdoor time with a mix of adventures and play.

Our Little Heroes Studio is for young heroes ages 5-7 years old. Our well-balanced educational experience ignites curiosity, perseverance, creativity, and moral character. The studio looks like happy, spirited children pushing boundaries in a safe environment designed for them. Kindness, independence, and self-regulation are of major character focus in this studio.

Our Little Hero teachers act as Guides, who understand that young learners need a certain balance of freedom and structure. Asking meaningful questions instead of always providing answers is a method that our studio is built on. We value the independent learner, and understand that education is a natural process that comes easy to children who are allowed to freely interact with their environments.

Our young heroes will spend their mornings in the studio engaging in sensorial materials, practical life challenges, and foundational math and language activities of their choice. The environment is carefully prepared with Montessori materials for the young heroes to explore and investigate. Our afternoons are filled with hands-on projects, loose parts play, and outdoor adventures. Afternoons also include extracurricular enrichment such as creative art, nature-based learning, and music.

Learning in a Montessori Setting at Hero's

We believe that learning to be, learning to do, and learning to learn are more important than learning to know.

Learn to Do

Hands-on, self-guided learning for help lay the foundation for their next adventure in the Elementary Studio and beyond

Learn to Learn

Socratic Discussions and self-paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.

Learn to Be

The Hero’s Journey, relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.

Our Learners Love to get Outside!

We get outside! We look for opportunities to take our learning out of the classroom and in to the fresh air.  We aren't afraid to get dirty while we learn through play!

Why Montessori?

Unlocking Potential: Hero's Montessori-Based Early Learning Program

The crucial period of learning spans from birth to seven years of age. During this time, children are naturally curious and eager to explore the world around them, making it imperative that the environment they encounter is enriching, secure, nurturing, and intellectually stimulating. Hero's Journey Academy, a premier Montessori school in Ascension Parish, recognizes the significance of this developmental stage and is committed to providing your child with a strong foundation for self-esteem and future learning.

Our Montessori-inspired Little Heroes program is thoughtfully designed to empower children to take steps towards independence in an environment tailored to the needs of young learners. This vibrant and nurturing setting offers your child a unique opportunity to develop essential social skills while exploring a diverse range of subjects, including language, music, practical life skills, art, math, geography, science, culture, and large motor activities.

Your child will be introduced to a multitude of concepts through observation and direct interaction with our meticulously crafted materials. Our goal is to create an engaging and interactive learning experience that lays a solid foundation for your child's future academic success.

We believe that learning to do, learning to be, and learning to learn are more important than memorization.
