The enrollment staff works collaboratively with the faculty to facilitate an admissions process that is professional, meaningful and pedagogically sound. The most important criterion is that the family values and supports a Waldorf educational philosophy. It is also important to ascertain if we will be able to meet the needs of the student and the expectations of the family.
Upon receipt of a complete application, the Enrollment Office will contact you to arrange an interview with the teachers.
Admission Decision and Notification
Admissions decisions are made by the Early Childhood faculty. Notification will be sent in writing within one week of the interview or as soon as possible once a decision has been made for summer or mid-year applicants.
