A Letter from Dr. Price

Dr. Price,

Superintendent of the Baldwin County Schools

As Superintendent of the Baldwin County School District, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Montessori Academy at the Early Learning Center. The Montessori Academy represents a totally new and innovative educational program unlike any other in the state of Georgia.

Via our partnership with Georgia College, we are now able to provide greater access to world-class educational opportunities for the Baldwin County community. The launch of the Montessori Academy at the Early Learning Center marks an incredibly exciting time for Georgia College and the Baldwin County School District, as we come together taking full advantage of this unique and vibrant educational partnership to offer our community, and our families, the best and most diverse educational opportunities available today.
