At DMA, our vision is to awaken within each child their unique potential that will enable them to make a valuable contribution to society.


The mission of Dixie Montessori Academy (DMA) is to provide a child-centered, individualized education founded upon the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. DMA will foster a structured environment of freedom and discovery in which each child can reach his or her full academic, social, and personal potential. Graduates of DMA will demonstrate creative thinking, self-discipline, respect, and cooperation, and will build a solid foundation for future success.


Meal Charge Policy (Proposed)

It is the policy of Dixie Montessori Academy (DMA) to minimize the amount of unpaid meal charges and to establish procedures for collecting them. DMA procedures are intended to ensure that employees, students, and parents have a shared understanding of the expectations for payment and collection of meal charge.
