Opportunity at The Institute for Educational Studies (TIES) at Endicott College 


IGS is a Partner Program with TIES!


The Institute for Guided Studies’ students and graduates are invited to obtain graduate credit for their Montessori training through The Institute for Educational Studies (TIES) at Endicott College, an internationally recognized

Montessori graduate program. Endicott College is located in Beverly, Massachusetts, just north of Boston. This program continues to be a forerunner in online education.

To earn your M.Ed. requires 36 credits. Please visit the program website at The descriptions here provide insight into the context of the program. We also encourage you to read the Program Commentaries page. The web site is where you will find the online graduate school application. There are no required residencies on the physical campus. Credits are earned through Endicott’s innovative eCampus. The faculty are all long time Montessori practitioners.

United States citizens qualify for Federally financed guaranteed student loans. If you enroll for the M.Ed. before you start at IGS, your IGS fees may also be covered. Contact us in the TIES office and we can explain the process.

Exciting Opportunity for IGS Graduates!


IGS and Sarasota University (SU) have entered into an articulation agreement for IGS graduates to receive credit towards a Masters of Arts Degree in Montessori Education or Montessori Leadership.


Just what is an articulation agreement?  This agreement formalizes the partnership between IGS and SU to allow for up to eighteen credits to be applied towards a Master’s degree when an IGS graduate enrolls in Sarasota University. This applies to all IGS graduates who currently have bachelor’s degree and a Montessori Educational Programs International (MEPI) credential at any level.  The Masters programs at SU consist of online courses which allows for students to complete their degrees with a distance learning strengths based program.
