Bhaktivedanta Academy is a Montessori school rooted in the rich spiritual traditions and culture of ancient India. Our founder and namesake, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, believed that children who are given a well-rounded education that includes a foundation in the practices of bhakti, or devotion to God, will be fully prepared to make lasting and meaningful contributions to our world. He had a vision for a truly twenty-first century education, which we offer. Nestled on a peaceful five acre campus outside of Gainesville, Florida, Bhaktivedanta Academy is a distinctive school that provides a comprehensive educational experience by fostering growth in all areas of a child’s development: spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical.
