Hello Tree House Parents:

As The Tree House begins the exciting process of becoming an independent school, we understand that there is a desire for more information surrounding the recent letter from the Diocese, which is completely understandable.

In an effort to answer any questions and address any concerns, members of the Board of Trustees will hold meetings with interested families. We will provide an environment that is conducive to honest and open communication. Each family deserves to have their questions answered and our undivided attention. We request that both parents be present for this productive dialogue. Childcare will be provided for Sunday’s slots.
The family meetings will be offered on the following dates/times:
  • Sunday, March 26th from 1-4pm* (childcare provided, please indicate your need on the sign-up comments section)
  • Monday, March 27th from 9am-12pm 
  • Tuesday, March 28th from 12pm-3pm.

If these times do not work for you, we are happy to coordinate alternative options to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to speak with Board representatives. Please email  to coordinate alternative options.

We feel confident that the information we gather during this process will help the leadership and parents together pave the way for a collaborative future for the benefit of our children.

Please click here to electronically sign-up for meetings (note: your name will be confidential and will not be visible) or sign-up in person with Ms. Summer by visiting or calling the school office at 850.622.9771.

Looking forward,
Board of Trustees, The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School


“Our sons, John Henry (5) and Whit (5) were one week into the Montessori program and when they would come home from school, they were playing with their toys in completely different ways! It was thrilling to see such creativity coming as a result of this type of education.”

-Heather & Eddie Cowen, Parents of two former Tree House students
