Thank you for your interest in Richmond Waldorf School. We would love to have you visit our school, and offer a variety of ways to learn more about our hands-on approach to learning.
The admissions process at Richmond Waldorf School begins with a visit to our school. We enjoy sharing Waldorf education with prospective families and welcome visitors. Parents may opt to attend an open house, group observation morning, or arrange a personal tour.
We offer rolling admissions in our Grades and Early Childhood Programs as space is available. Late Spring and Summer applications will be considered as space is available. We will offer a wait list for Early Childhood classes that have filled. Tuition Adjustment (TA) awards will be based on financial need and available funds.
Spring and Summer inquiries are welcome to make an appointment for an individual meeting and tour. We would love for you to visit us! Personal tours offer flexibility and an opportunity to talk specifically about your family’s goals.
To schedule a personal tour, contact Valerie Hogan, Marketing & Enrollment Coordinator, by calling 804-377-8024 ext 204, or fill out the form below.
Windows Into Waldorf: An Interactive Open House
Our next Open House will be on Saturday, October 20, 2018.
Open Houses allow parents and their children to experience Waldorf education through interactive workshops and activities led by our faculty. Families will meet teachers, parents, and students; visit classrooms and playgrounds; view student work; and learn about how to apply. It won’t take long to see why our hands-on approach naturally engages children in the learning process.
Classroom Observation Mornings
Classroom observations allow parents to see the inside of Waldorf classrooms during the school day. These group tours are scheduled from September through March and provide an overview of our Early Childhood or Grades programs. Observation mornings are intended for parents only and generally last about 60 minutes.
Early Childhood Classroom Observations are held October – April. These parent-only observations allow you to experience the wonder and joy of Waldorf Early Childhood. Our mixed-age classes area filled with practical and artistic activities, as well as indoor and outdoor unstructured play, engaging children’s creativity and social skills. Parents will also learn how the Waldorf model progresses to elementary and middle school.
Classroom Observation Mornings for grades 1 through 8 provide a chance to visit a series of classrooms and to see Waldorf Education in action. Visiting multiple classes and ages allows attendees to get a sense of the full Waldorf program and what the curriculum looks like for children at a range of ages. These observations will be take place from October – March.
