Maryland's First Charter School
Monocacy Valley Montessori Public Charter School is the first charter school within the Frederick County Public School (FCPS) system. Attendance is open to all FCPS students entering Pre-K through eighth grade through a Lottery system held annually in March each year. The school's academic program is based on the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. The students, staff and families of MVMPCS are working together to create an enriching learning community. The first step in exploring a Montessori education is to visit our school on one of our monthly tours. We encourage you to sign up.
