Our Programs and Curriculum

The Waldorf School of New Orleans is an independent school that provides a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education. Our goal is to inspire lifelong learning and to enable students to fully develop their capacities.

We provide classes for children from nursery school and preschool through 8th grade, including before- and afterschool care and a parent/child playgroup for ages 1 to 3.

Why Waldorf? Videos & Links

For the Waldorf student, music, theater, literature, mathematics, and science are not simply subjects to be read about and tested on. They are experienced.

Through these experiences, Waldorf students cultivate their intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual capacities to become individuals certain of their paths and of service to the world.

"When children relate what they learn to their own experience, they are interested and alive, and what they learn becomes their own. Waldorf schools are designed to foster this kind of learning."
Henry Barnes, a longtime Waldorf teacher and the former Chairman of the Board of AWSNA
