K-8 public charter school inspired by Waldorf education and sustainable living in Fort Collins, Colorado.

School Fee Payment Update

We purchase school supplies so you don't have to! This allows us to purchase items typically found in Waldorf and Waldorf-inspired schools and helps to free up your time. To cover this cost, we charge a Student Supply Fee of $250 for each K-8 student and $100 for each Forest School student. Student Supply Fees for the 2022-2023 school year are due on November 1st and can be paid with either cash or check dropped off at the school or, after August 15th, with a credit card on our Payment Portal.

7 Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education

As a member of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education, we support and follow these important principles:

1. Image of the Human Being. Public Waldorf education is founded on a coherent image of the developing human being. 

2. Child Development. An understanding of child development guides all aspects of the educational program, to the greatest extent possible within established legal mandates.

3. Social Change Through Education. Public Waldorf education exists to serve both the individual and society.

4. Human Relationships. Public Waldorf Schools foster a culture of healthy relationships.

5. Access and Diversity. Public Waldorf Schools work to increase diversity and access to all sectors of society.

6. Collaborative Leadership. School leadership is conducted through shared responsibilities within established legal structures.

7. Schools as Learning Communities. Public Waldorf schools cultivate a love of lifelong learning and self-knowledge.
