Application for AMI Recognition Status

Click here for the 23-24 Application for AMI Recognition Status!



AMI/USA administers the AMI Recognition Program for Montessori schools in the USA. Among the many benefits of AMI Recognition, the most significant is the association with AMI, the organization founded by Maria Montessori in 1929. AMI Recognition provides assurance to families, prospective staff and the community at large of adherence to AMI Standards. The consultation visit supports teachers and administrators with program mentoring.

Participating programs are listed on the School Locator and receive the Member School Seal for marketing purposes. A recognition certificate is issued by AMI/USA that is suitable for framing and confirms each program’s dedication to AMI standards.

  • For those with a consultation required, the deadline is September 15, 2023.
  • If a consultation is not required, the application deadline is October 20, 2023.
