The Waldorf School of Garden City
Garden City, NY

The Waldorf School of Garden City is an independent college preparatory day school for children in Nursery through Twelfth Grade. Established in 1947, our ten-acre campus is located in the suburban village of Garden City, just 18 miles from midtown Manhattan.  While it does not fit the model of a college town, Garden City is also the site of Adelphi University, which hosts almost 8,000 undergraduate students and is directly adjacent to The Waldorf School of Garden City campus. Through our unique partnership with the University, Waldorf high school students are able to take college courses and earn transferable college credit while in high school.

The School’s beautiful 10-acre campus features playgrounds, gardens, and playing fields bordered by a wooded “Nature Trail” which provides a visual and environmental boundary from the suburban houses and university buildings that surround us. The indoor facilities, all of which are connected, feature a historical main building entrance, a large gymnasium, a performance space, a modern library center, a fiber arts studio, three laboratories, a woodshop, music and practice rooms, a cafeteria, and a visual arts studio.
