At Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School, we enjoy a 400-acre campus surrounded by the cultivated fields, gardens, and forests of Hawthorne Valley Farm, an active Biodynamic farm. The beauty of tended nature and the seasons of farm life provide exceptional educational resources built into the founding ideals of Hawthorne Valley. We offer an integrative Waldorf curriculum that combines academic exploration; practical, performing, and fine arts; and enriching, hands-on experiences in nature and at Hawthorne Valley’s working farm.
Each year’s curriculum is designed to meet the unique needs of the developing child or young adult. In the Parent-Child and Kindergarten offerings, childhood is honored and imagination is nurtured through creative play. The Lower and Middle School grades foster development of healthy social relationships and a love of learning. In the High School, young women and men grow academically, artistically, and socially into the creative individuals needed in today’s complex world.
With a unique home-based high school boarding program designed to meet the needs of the developing adolescent and an active international exchange program, Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School welcomes students from all around the world.
Whether you are a parent looking for a first experience for your young child or a Middle or High School student, we invite you to explore Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School. We expect you will discover a remarkable place to study, live, learn, and grow.
