Interested in earning your Montessori secondary teaching credential?

  • CMStep now offers TWO options to help you meet your goal: a low-residency program and a high-residency program. 
  • Both paths lead to the same outcome: an AMS Secondary I-II credential
  • Both paths utilize in person and online coursework
  • High-residency cohort for 2021 will be CMStep Cincinnati Cohort 16 
  • CMStep will not start a high-residency cohort in 2020, due to COVID-19
  • Low-residency Cohort 1 has several sections with different start dates. The next section begins September 20th.
  • 2021 in-person training dates for low- and high-residency will be released as soon as possible
