Admissions Events

Hello there!

Parents considering independent education may feel unsure about which school would be the best match. Academics are important, but parents also want assurance that their child will have a strong foundation to meet the future successfully in these times of global change.

Learn how the Waldorf School of Philadelphia combines substantive academics with social learning and how we've been heling parents to raise confident, resilient, and morally intelligent children for 25 years. Waldorf education goes beyond the development of the intellect, focusing on the development of the whole human being and helping children bring goodness, beauty and truth into the world.

The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is a pre-k through 8th-grade independent school, located on a historic wooded campus in the heart of Germantown. Our rich and substantive curriculum resonates with students because it is crafted to respond to each developmental stage. From pre-k to 8th-grade, every year unfolds with a joyful purpose that sparks curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.

An independent Waldorf education may be more affordable that you think. The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is proud to offer financial aid, scholarships and grants.
