SMA: A Tuition Free K-8 Public Charter School

Sierra Montessori Academy


Welcome to SMA

Welcome to SMA


Dear Charter Families,

It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to all our current children and families, to our new families and to those thinking about joining our SMA Community.   

We have established a positive culture built on a strong, rigorous and child-centered academic program.  Our mission is to create a climate that maximizes instructional time for student learning while developing healthy physical, social and emotional skills in a safe and caring environment.  As your Director, my goal is to build on the schools many successes in order to fully realize this mission.

The faculty, staff and I are committed to nurturing your child's educational experiences, promoted through a diverse curriculum, a dedicated and knowledgeable faculty, and a vibrant school/community partnership.  Effective communication, cooperation and collaboration between home and school are essential to build a strong foundation for a successful school community. 

We encourage and invite parent and community involvement in an effort to build upon the educational experiences for each of the students that attend Sierra Montessori Academy.  Newsletters announcing upcoming events may be found on our website.  Newsletters are often sent home with the students on Friday or Thursday if there is no school on Friday.

I encourage you to navigate through our website to see our offerings.  Your children are the most important asset in our school community and we take this commitment seriously.  I look forward to working with our families in support of your children by providing an enriching, engaging, and rigorous academic experience.

Your thoughts and questions are always welcome, so please feel free to call 530-268-9990  or
email me at at any time.


Stephen De Sena
Executive Director
