With the continued success of Redwood Coast Montessori, and the increased demand for expanding grade opportunities within the Montessori method of instruction, the Arcata campus was opened during the fall of 2017. Serving students in grades 7-11 (12th grade will be added for the 2020-21 school year), the Arcata campus along with the campus in Manila offers the unique opportunity to experience public Montessori education from Tk through 12th grade.


The focus of the RCM program in Arcata, is to integrate a rigorous curriculum, including UC/CSU 4-Year college requirements, across disciplines and grade levels that sets students up for becoming independent, self-directed, confident learners. RCM promotes a growth mindset in an individualized, project based learning environment that prepares students for success in college and career.
