Welcome to CVMS!

Chemung Valley Montessori School is deliberately small and individually focused. Using proven Montessori methods, we cultivate independent, curious lifetime learners as we inspire academic excellence and build community. We also provide meaningful before- and after-school and summer programs for our students. Learn more about CVMS and the distinctions that set us apart.
