history

Holy Trinity Montessori was founded as a non-profit school in 2009 by our Head of School, Kate Riley. A trained Montessori instructor with more than a decade of experience at the time, Kate had a dream to start a Montessori school with a faith-based element and an affordable tuition structure to serve families in the Bellevue area of Nashville. Kate approached a local church about sharing space to open her school, and in August of 2009, Holy Trinity Montessori welcomed our first twenty students.


We started with one toddler classroom and one primary classroom (for preschool aged children), but before long we expanded to serve more than 75 students, adding additional Primary classrooms as well as Lower and Upper Elementary. It quickly became evident that we needed our own space in order to accommodate our vibrant and growing community.


After several years of searching for the perfect spot, we purchased 38 acres of pristine land in the rolling hills of Bellevue and built our beautiful new campus. Classes officially began on our new property in January of 2017. Holy Trinity Montessori proudly serves children ranging in age from 18 months through Grade 8.
