Growing Up Strong:
What if the edge we gave our children was emotional and social well-being?
Greetings from the Admissions office and thank you for your interest in our school.
Arranged on four distinct campuses, we are the only independent school in the region that offers a full Preschool through Grade 12 curriculum. Although our school is small, it is not our size that matters, but the principles upon which our school was founded and the values that inspire and support our curriculum and our work with students. We hold true to the tenets of Waldorf Education while seeking ways in which to evolve and fully prepare our students to achieve their highest human capacity of self-knowledge, self-reliance, and self-assurance.
Our curriculum is intentionally designed to meet students at each developmental stage. We build healthy relationships, provide multiple, experiential and immersive learning opportunities, offer full integration of art, music, and movement into academics, and prepare our students for a rapidly changing world.
Our students understand that they play an integral role in their community and in the world; not asking what they are to be given but what each can contribute in his or her own unique way.
Please explore our website and contact me today to begin a conversation as to how this bountiful education can meet the needs of your child(ren).
