How to Apply

Before you apply, have you...


Taken a tour?

We require all interested families to take a tour of campus prior to submitting an application. Waldorf education is different from all other methodologies.  It is important for parents to fully understand the approach and techniques used to ensure it is consistent with their educational goals for their child(ren).   During a full school tour you will receive an overview of all programs offered from preschool through 8th grade.  In addition to the delivery of rich academics, you will learn about the special subjects offered (music, foreign language, gardening, movement, handwork, woodwork, land stewardship, advanced middle school math, instruments, band, singing, and more) that create a well-rounded and well-educated human being.  Choosing your child’s educational program is one of the most important decisions that parents will make.  We require a tour so all of our parents are well-informed about their choice.
