Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- Imagine your child excelling at a school where they are enjoying a balanced and rigorous education in a beautiful setting. Where they, along with their parents, develop close social connections as their class moves through the grades. Our preschool and kindergarten students thrive in a play based classroom where imagination and developmentally appropriate activities abound. They paint, bake, build, run, craft, and play together indoors and outside. Each day they have focused "circle time" with their teacher filled with movement, games and stories in order to develop literacy, social, and motor skills, all set within beautiful imagery. When your child moves into the grade classes a rich and developmentally sound curriculum awaits their exploration. From number concepts in the First Grade, Projective Geometry in the Sixth through to Algebra in the Eighth Grade, we provide a thoughtful approach to math that forms the solid foundation for more advanced mathematics in high school and university. Writing, reading, and recitation are the core of language skills development which is woven into many classroom activities such as social sciences, history, and even science throughout the year. These are enhanced by students creating a play every year with their class, and illustrating their Main Lesson books. Our students spend time in nature every day, go on adventures, play a musical instrument and have the opportunity to maintain their enthusiasm and creativity while in a school environment. This provides resilience and a capacity for a continued love of learning into adolescence and adulthood. Come take a tour and experience the difference that education in a Waldorf School could make for your family.
