Bethany Global University’s Christian Montessori Training Center (CMTC) is accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) and the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE).


The Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE), founded in 1995, is dedicated to improving academic degree and certificate programs for Montessori professional educators – those who teach and lead in schools, Infant and Toddler through Secondary II, and to assure the public of their quality.

MACTE accredits certification programs based on (1) the evidence they have that they prepare competent, caring, and qualified professional Montessori educators and (2) their capacity to monitor and improve the program’s quality. MACTE believes this is the soundest way to assure the public about the quality of these programs. The Montessori teacher education program, not the college, school, department, or other administrative unit of the institution, receives MACTE accreditation.
