Support the YMA Pajama Drive

Yonkers Montessori Academy is participating in a Pajama Drive for students in need in Westchester County.  Our goal is to collect over 200 pajamas.  As we approach the winter and holiday season, this program assists in our efforts to “give back” to our community and ensure all children in the county have pajamas.  Please help if you can by donating a new pair of pajamas with the tags on them or a brand new book.  The students who participate will be able to wear their own pajamas to school on Wednesday, November 5, 2014.  We thank you for participating and every donation is greatly appreciated.


Students do great things at Yonkers Montessori Academy!  We look forward to an exciting year ahead!

Welcome to our site. I am pleased that you have taken the time to visit the Yonkers Montessori Academy website.  I hope that you find our website to be user-friendly and informative.
Yonkers Montessori Academy is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful pre-kindergarten through high school experience.  The Yonkers Montessori Academy instructional program is rooted in the Montessori philosophy.  The curriculum, course offerings, and extra-curricular activities are aligned with New York State standards and we are in the process of reviewing the New Common Core Standards.  We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success. I hope that this website helps you gather more information about our school.  As always, I have an open door policy and I am available should you have any questions or feedback on making it better.  Thank you. Eileen E. Rivera, Principal Yonkers Montessori Academy
