2021-22 Application for AMI Recognition Status

AMI/USA administers the AMI Recognition program for Montessori Schools in the United States. To be eligible for an AMI Certificate of Recognition, a school submits the annual Application for AMI Recognition Status, including information on each program for which the school would like to receive a status. The recognition status is based upon the compliance with the AMI standards. Each program (Assistants to Infancy, Primary and/or Elementary) receives a distinct status, which may or may not be the same as the other levels at the school.

  • Applications must be made annually, and certificates of recognition are valid only for the current school year.
  • It is a requirement for recognition that a school abide by all local, state and federal ordinances, statutes, rules and regulations.
  • AMI/USA reserves the right to refuse recognition, or revoke it, whenever the activities of a school are found to be inconsistent with AMI’s aims or when any fees due AMI/USA are outstanding for more than 30 days.
