The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is a modern, organic learning environment in the heart of Germantown, based on Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy of education. Our mission is to create a vibrant learning community based on a deep understanding of the child, integrating the intellectual with the artistic and the practical with the beautiful. We provide a decidedly independent form of education that creates decidedly independent thinkers. Learning that inspires. Learning that endures. And learning that your children will treasure forever.
