The Youth Initiative High School exists to provide holistic Waldorf-inspired education for grades 9-12.
We work with the Steiner model of the "three-fold human being" consisting of body soul and spirit and strive to integrate "head, heart and hands" (thinking, feeling and willing) into the fabric of school life.
Parents, students and faculty cooperatively weave this fabric.
We will create an environment, which encourages and assists students in becoming free thinkers, and in maturing, into active response able, empowered participants in the greater society.
The school, its students, families and faculty will be of service to the larger community.
