Our preschool program in Pittsburgh's North Suburbs creates a warm, loving and caring atmosphere in which each child is given the opportunity to experience social, physical and academic growth. Children graduate from our program with all the tools to help them succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Local school districts regularly report that our students are among the best prepared.

Our program began in 1980 as Mount Assisi Academy Preschool, a sponsored ministry of the School Sisters of St. Francis. Over nearly 40 years, we have had the honor of serving multiple generations in some families. Even the children and grandchildren of some of our earliest students have come through our program! So as the School Sisters aged and their need to repurpose the space occupied by our program intensified, we set out to find a new home to continue to serve our preschool families.

With the 2018-2019 school year, we moved to the grounds of McKnight United Methodist Church in Ross Township and are now known as Amazing Scholar Academy Preschool. We brought along with us to our new home the same curriculum, approach and lay teaching team, as well as gratitude to the MUMC community for welcoming us. We are excited to have many of our current preschool families come along with as, and we are delighted to welcome new children and families to our quality program.
