This 4-day annual gathering gives our leadership and teaching staff the opportunity to connect with other Montessorians, examine current education practices, and reflect on their knowledge and understanding of Montessori instruction through networking activities, lectures, presentations, and breakout sessions.
Attending the AMI/USA Refresher Course is an important part of the guide experience at SCM.
It was an affirmation of the work that happens here every day and a reminder of what's truly important – supporting the development of the whole person and cultivating the intrinsic joy of learning. Amy Lindsey, High School Guide
This professional development opportunity is made possible in part by the generosity of the St. Catherine’s community and their contributions to the SCM Fund. These gifts help cover the costs of attending the refresher course, including workshop registrations, hotel accommodations, and continuing education credits.
Beyond the annual refresher course, SCM Fund contributions help support AMI membership fees, courses in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, program specific trainings in math, languages, college admissions, and music, among other topics.
