Waldorf Education seeks to reclaim the wholeness of human potential for every  child by carefully nurturing and developing the artist, the thinker, and the doer in  each one. That is why the Waldorf curriculum integrates academic, artistic, and  practical studies. Teachers strive to develop in each child the ability to act out of  freedom, based on knowledge, self-reliance, and skill in body, mind, and spirit. Waldorf education is a journey toward freedom, through wholeness. We want to see  young people arrive intact at the threshold of adulthood, knowing they can bring all  the gifts of heart and mind, imagination and discipline to whatever purpose and di rection they choose to take in their lives.
