Home to the oldest international Waldorf high school in North America that offers a full boarding program as well as a day school, our curriculum provides a well-rounded college preparatory experience that equips students for lives of meaning and purpose.
While our curriculum is relevant for our time, you learn the timeless skill of how to learn. Immersed in challenging courses, you are encouraged to witness, explore, create, and engage deeply in developing and synthesizing your learning. As you question and deepen your understanding, you experience the power of persistence. Our project-based approach allows you to breathe: courses move from focused, core academic subjects to immersive learning experiences in language, movement, arts, music, nature, and drama. Project-based, experiential learning allows you to learn in the moment, and to connect thinking, sensitivity, and actions in a deeper way.
As a freshman and sophomore, you follow a structured course sequence that enables you to try new disciplines and experience different ways of learning. At the end of your sophomore year, with your advisor's guidance and parents' support, you review your first two years and create a plan for the next two. As a junior and senior, you have a broad choice of electives and are encouraged to chart your own path to graduation that reflects your unique interests and passions. As a senior, you complete your capstone project, which integrates experiential and academic modes of learning with public presentation, focusing on your specific interests or envisioned college major.
We are committed to making the admissions process a positive experience and look forward to connecting with you.
