Founded in 1942, High Mowing School offers preschool through grade 8 education on our Pine Hill campus and grades 9 through 12 on our adjoining high school campus.

We believe that more than knowledge, now widely and easily accessible, it is the uniquely human capacities of integrity, resourcefulness, and resilience that are the best allies of today's children. The programs and activities we offer nurture these essential capacities. Our students have the opportunity to get to know themselves well and to become discerning and empowered individuals and community members, in ways that are appropriate to each stage of their development.

We educate our students to seek truth and fulfill their highest potential, to impart meaningful purpose to their lives, and to contribute courageously to the positive development of the world.


High Mowing School is a coeducational, non-denominational college-preparatory Waldorf boarding and day school serving motivated students in early childhood programs through grade 12.

We recognize and nurture the highest potential in each school community member. We serve our students’ ongoing discovery of the world and of themselves, and we guide them in developing their capacities to fully experience their unique life journey. We model excellence in Waldorf education, and aspire to be a catalyst for positive change in the world. Our graduates are prepared to reach their unique individual goals and to contribute to a sustainable, generative, and peaceful future.


These are our core values.
