Waldorf education draws on the educational philosophy of Dr. Rudolf Steiner, whose  insights inspire the sequence, content, and methods of instruction at our School. One of the distinguishing features of Waldorf education is the belief that human beings bear within themselves capacities for developing freedom of thought, balance in feeling, and conscious purpose in action that will enable them to realize meaning in their lives. To support the development of these capacities, our curriculum strives to balance academic, practical, creative, and physical endeavors in an interdisciplinary manner.



We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
