Annual Performing Arts Concert

Our annual Performing Arts Concert for grades 8 through 12 took place the Zankel Music Center on the Skidmore College campus last night, and it did NOT fail to impress.

You can catch the whole show on the Zankel's Livestream link. Congratulations to our students and the faculty who work with them!

"They are experiencing new emotional waters that have an effect on them, changing th

Grand Finales to Their Waldorf Educations!

Fashion, music, film, pottery, aviation, glass, jewelry, Polynesian culture and more were covered. The senior project is looked upon as the culmination of the student’s Waldorf education experience and demonstrates the ability to
