Cedarwood Waldorf School is an independent, private school accredited by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) with Developing School status. Like most Waldorf Schools, our school is self-administered.
Cedarwood School brings Waldorf Education to life and strives to instill a love for learning. Our curriculum weaves together the arts, academics and movement, with a reverence for the developing child. We nurture our children’s spirituality, cultivate their ability to think imaginatively and inspire them to seek the truth.
Our curriculum covers a full spectrum of traditional academic subjects and integrates artistic activities into the academics that allow students to engage in learning at the emotional level. Painting, music, and story are integral parts of academic lessons so that art becomes a conduit of knowledge, not an optional add-on. Kinesthetic learning is also interwoven through movement and crafts. Cedarwood cultivates a love of and respect for nature and the rhythms of the seasons through seasonal celebrations and daily time outdoors.
Cedarwood School first opened in October of 1997 with one teacher and four students. Now, with over 280 students and a full array of subject classes, we continue our visioning and plan to add a new wing to our building so that we can maximize the programmatic potential of the school to serve our full pre-kindergarten through eighth grade program.
