Help Us Get to Know You

Deadline: March 1

Admissions are not first-come, first-serve, but applying early (Aug­–Nov) increases consideration.

Fee: $75

Note: Provide as much information as possible on your application. We take gender, age and class size into consideration. Priority goes to siblings of enrolled children and Waldorf transfers.


Take Time to Understand

Purpose: After application review, the Enrollment Director will contact you to arrange a 1-3 day classroom visit, which allows the teachers to observe your child’s class interaction, and helps your child understand how a Waldorf classroom flows.

Grade 1 – 3 Assessment: Meet with our Therapeutic Specialist to assess grade level readiness.

Grade 3 – 5 Assessment: Meet with our Literacy Specialist to assess reading grade level and the main lesson teacher to assess math and writing grade levels.


Let’s Connect

We will contact you to schedule an interview. Faculty and staff will then meet to determine if Waldorf education is the best fit for the student.



What Happens? Once notified, you’ll receive an admissions packet with the Tuition and Enrollment Contract, Registration Fee Invoice, School Year Calendar and SMART Tuition Management Forms.

Grade 1 – Age & Maturity Matters: First Grade Readiness Assessment is conducted in the spring. Children must be 6 years old by April 30th to be considered for 1st Grade fall enrollment.
