Wildcat Canyon Community School is a startup, grassroots school on a beautiful 91-acre campus adjacent to Wildcat Canyon. ‘

WCCS Purpose

We aspire to co-create a world where the highest ideals of Waldorf educational methods are accessible to every child. Where belonging and peace are rights held by all. Where education includes healthy spiritual development, and joy in learning becomes a stepping stone to meaningful change in the world. Where we honor the land, the wisdom of our elders and ancestors, and duty to the generations to come.


Wildcat Canyon Community School embraces a progressive approach to Waldorf education in which the curriculum is continually regenerated for relevance in the present time. We honor the child’s natural phases of learning and ignite the spark of individuality in each child, developing a lifelong commitment to learning, creativity, and social responsibility. WCCS is committed to dynamic governance by the teachers and cooperative community leadership; an economic model that values people over money; uplifting social, racial, and land justice in all domains; and ongoing training and practice in restorative and transformative justice.

If you are interested in a vibrant startup school which emphasizes community, outdoor education, social, racial, and land justice, and the Waldorf principles of respecting the stages of child development and the cycles of the natural world, please join us!

The impact of COVID-19 business closures and job losses has adversely affected many in our EBWS community, making tuition payments difficult or impossible. This has had a direct impact on our ability to offer schooling in the 2020-21 school year. Our doors will be closed this year.

But our community is hoping to stay together and reemerge as a school after  the COVID pandemic.

Please consider making a donation, if you are able. Every contribution — from $5 to $5,000 — supports the reopening of our school committed to a Waldorf-inspired, humanistic approach — needed now more than ever.  Click here to make an online donation.

Thank you for your kind generosity.

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that our school sits on the ancestral homelands of the Ohlone people, who tended to this place for thousands of years before us and who continue to inhabit the Bay Area despite many challenges, including over two centuries of genocidal policies and systemic racism. The Ohlone are federally unrecognized and therefore receive no rights, reservation land base, or other benefits from the U.S. government. Still, they persevere in their efforts to protect sacred sites and revitalize their cultural practices and language. We honor the resilience and knowledge of the Ohlone with gratitude.

WCCS = 91 acres

Now more than ever, children need nature!

Academic outcomes and overall well-being are improved for children who have ready access to nature out their school window and during their recess. If you are interested in the combination of Nature+Waldorf-inspired for the 2021-22 school year, please email info@wildcatcanyon.org
