Notes for Prospective Students

Educational Philosophy

Waldorf schools are based on the ideas of the Austrian philosopher, artist, and educator Dr.
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925).
Through his work in the fields of philosophy, science, religion, agriculture, art, medicine, and education he created a new form of pedagogy that focuses on the whole child: hands, heart, and mind.

In 1919 Rudolf Steiner founded the first Waldorf School for the children belonging to the workers of the Waldorf-Astoria cigarette factory because he believed that quality education should be afforded to all children.
The school quickly gained international recognition and hundreds of Waldorf schools sprung up all over the globe.
The number of Waldorf schools worldwide has more than doubled in the last decade, making it one of the fastest growing educational movements in the world.
Waldorf schools are committed to academic excellence and offer a challenging classical education that prepares students for the most demanding universities.
At the core of the Waldorf philosophy is the belief that knowledge is best acquired experientially as well as academically.
Education is an artistic process.

Inspired by the Waldorf philosophy, the Sustainable Farm School takes a step beyond with two key examples.
Like Waldorf, we believe individuals prosper in a simple, beautiful, and natural environment.
Therefore, we hold our school on an organic farm and include all aspects of tending to the land and animals into our curricula.
Our students participate in daily farm and garden chores.
Learning to successfully interact with the land and animals prepares them with advanced survival skills and a love for nature. Additionally, we place specific emphasis on forward thinking ideologies including social, cultural, environmental, and economic sustainability.
Our educators value the academic tradition, many of them holding the highest degrees in their field, while maintaining a natural connection to the earth.
With a student to teacher ratio of 5:1, students will get the attention and guidance necessary for a comprehensive and enjoyable education.

Our main lesson is a 1.5 to 2 hour long daily lesson rotating through the five academic subjects: Language Arts, History, Mathematics, Science, and Literature.
Our secondary courses include Whole Food Preparation, Radical Home Economics, the Mythologies, Music, Art, and Philosophy among others.
Each term focuses on a different cultural or historic theme, unifying lessons and creating a diversity of understanding in the schoolroom.Our school takes a step beyond the Waldorf School and traditional educational experience.
