Joyful Life-long Learning

We are a Lancaster County private school with students from York, Lancaster, Reading, Harrisburg, and beyond. We offer classes from preschool through 8th Grade. There is a lot that makes our school by the river different but one of the most significant things that make Susquehanna Waldorf School unique is our whole-child approach to education. We believe that school should invigorate children and contribute positively to their overall wellbeing and happiness.

At Susquehanna Waldorf School, our graduates build meaningful lives full of purpose and creativity through a rigorous educational foundation that nurtures the unique potential within each child. It’s our belief that by using inspiration as a key ingredient in our hands-on curriculum, we can cultivate the creative capacities that lead to joyful, life-long learning.

Our Mission

The Susquehanna Waldorf School inspires resilience and compassion in our students, awakens their capacities for innovative learning, and prepares them to engage with purpose in the world.

Our Vision

The Susquehanna Waldorf School educates children out of a strong anthroposophical understanding of the developing child, so that they may go forth with resilience, compassion, purpose and capacities for innovative thinking.
