Off-Site Partner Training Institutes

AMI Concurrent M.Ed. Pathway

Loyola University Maryland offers a 36-credit Master of Education program in Montessori Education at the Assistants-to-Infancy, Primary, and Elementary levels. This unique program is offered in partnership with the select group of AMI institutes listed below. Candidates must dually enroll at one of our off-site partner institutes and earn 27 graduate credits throughout their AMI training, then complete 9 final credits online* over the following summer. (*Note: does not require travel to Loyola's campus, and therefore an I-20 cannot be issued by Loyola.)

Each of our partners is affiliated with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the organization Dr. Montessori founded in 1929 to promote the cause of all children around the world.
