About Leonardo Da Vinci Academy of Arts and Sciences
Leonardo Da Vinci Academy is an exceptional private school for children during their formative years. From Preschool to Grade 8, our unique and well-rounded programs aim to instill a love of learning and to challenge students to develop their whole potential. Our programs and methodology are inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and Maria Montessori.
LDVA was founded in 1983, on principles inspired by Leonardo da Vinci and Maria Montessori. In keeping with the concept of Plato’s Academy, the school embraces the Montessori methodology and a unique “Thinking Like Leonardo” approach to learning. A rich and well-rounded program of studies along with a nurturing philosophy of education help to nurture the growth of lifelong learners and independent thinkers. Grade 8 graduates are well-prepared for high school and the future. The school features CCMA accredited Casa (a licensed preschool for 2.5 to 6 year olds) and Lower Elementary Montessori programs, and an authentic Italian immersion preschool.
