Athletics

Students learn immeasurable and unique lessons through their participation in interscholastic sports, and the Waldorf School of Garden City has a long-standing tradition of excellence in athletics. Student athletes are expected to honorably represent both their school and their community while participating in athletic competitions.

 

The Waldorf School of Garden City participates in the Private School Athletic Association (PSAA), competing against schools from across Long Island and the boroughs of New York City. Our teams succeed because our coaches emphasize good physical conditioning, sound fundamental skills, focused effort in both practices and games, and unselfish teamwork.

In the Middle School, every student is invited to participate in extracurricular sports, where fundamental skills, hard work, and team strategy are the focal points. The goal is to foster a love of the game, while developing the skills necessary to succeed at the next level.

Participation in High School athletics requires a significant level of student commitment. Varsity athletics balances fun, hard work, and healthy competition, and our Athletic Department focuses on team play and sportsmanship over individual achievement. Student athletes at the Waldorf School of Garden City are expected to think clearly, demonstrate a sincere concern for others, and perform with discipline and courage.

Our School is proud of its athletic tradition and the numerous honors, awards, and championships earned by our teams, and our student athletes, over the years.

CAMPUS LIFE

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.

PARENTS

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.

GREEN & ACTIVE

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.

ACADEMICS

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.

ADMISSIONS

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

THE BASICS

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