About Xavier University

Xavier University Montessori Lab School was established in 1966 as a demonstration project to reflect the philosophy and teaching methods of the Montessori Teacher Education Program at Xavier University. The directive of the Lab School was to serve as a venue for pre-service teachers, provide an interactive learning environment for Xavier undergraduate and graduate students, as well as providing an observation facility that would service the awareness of Montessori education to a broader community.
