“The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility – these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education”
–Rudolf Steiner

Parent Child Programs

This foundational program provides a supportive environment to parents and caregivers as they delve into the joys and challenges of parenting, giving focused attention to their child as he or she explores the world.

Early Childhood

Waldorf Early Childhood educates through play while nurturing a reverence for the natural world, establishing rhythms and loving relationships while developing the imagination.

Lower School

Encompassing first through fifth grade, children are provided with tactile and imaginative experiences and explore academic foundations through storytelling, painting and music.

Middle School

In sixth through eighth grade, students’ developing truth-seeking interests, personal transformation and capacities to form accurate judgments are bolstered by an integrated curriculum that supports their path of becoming capable, confident adults.

Specialty Subjects

Waldorf schools around the world have integrated the arts into every subject to provide rich and varied specialty subjects that complement and deepen the lessons taught by the class teacher. By supporting the main lesson blocks, the specialty subjects, led by specialists in their field, balance and enliven the rigorous classical education with imagination and creativity, giving students a fully-integrated learning experience that extends the core academic subjects. Classes include eurythmy, handwork, languages, music, performing arts, orchestra and woodworking.
