Inspired to Learn, Prepared to Thrive

We are proud to be inspired by Waldorf Education, a worldwide movement that began in 1919. Rooted in a profound understanding of how children learn and grow, Waldorf education is based on the principles of education from world-renowned, scientist, artist, and founder of Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner. This approach nurtures the natural joy that children take in learning with lessons not simply based on repetition and memorization, but experienced through immersive, hands-on participation. Each school year is designed to meet children’s evolving aptitude for experiences and social interactions.

Generations of Waldorf graduates have gone on to become mathematicians, artists, entrepreneurs, biochemists, teachers, leaders.
