Get Involved


We'd love for you to join AMAC - our greatest strength lies in our numbers and having members supporting our work. Become a member (dues due annually) so you can know about all the great things AMAC is doing.

We need people to support our work - this varies based on the initiative. Sometimes it's best to come to a meeting, maybe email the School Board, or sign a petition. If you are passionate about a topic, we love more people doing the work. We'll let you know. Check out some of our current initiatives below.

Join some of our upcoming events. These are a great way for you to get more involved in the greater Montessori community and meet like-minded people. Plus, our events are so fun they often sell out so grab your tickets quickly!



Registration for our annual Lake Fairfax camping trip is now open! Happening June 14 - 16th. Reserve your spot today!

Full Circle Montessori offers a variety of parent classes. They also have an indoor play space for children under 3.5 called the Full Circle Nest which is an intentionally designed space to promote independence, confidence, fine and gross motor development, and creativity. 


corn maze / star gaze

Join us at Great Country Farms for some fun! We'll have access to the farm's play area and corn maze. Fun includes slides, jumping pillow, rope swing, ninja course, barn animals and more! Once it gets dark, we will assemble at a far end of the farm for star gazing with an astronomer to help us view the night sky through telescopes.

Note: this is a private event (other groups will be there) and tickets must be purchased in advance.

Time: 6 - 9pm
