Mission

BZ2_4213

The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is a vibrant learning community where education, based on a deep understanding of the developing child, integrates the intellectual with the artistic, the practical with the beautiful — fostering the ability to engage fully in the world.



We achieve our mission by:

  • Applying the innovative educational philosophy and curriculum of Rudolf Steiner in a contemporary context
  • Upholding a standard of excellence and integrity in academics, arts and human relationships
  • Honoring and valuing each child and his or her unique gifts
  • Cultivating dynamic working relationships with and among the faculty, the board, the administration and the community of families
  • Striving for cultural diversity within an urban setting, with a commitment to the importance of nature and its stewardship
