Admissions Process

Finding the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. If you are questioning the high-pressure “teach to test” model and want something more meaningful for your child, please contact us. We offer a comprehensive and inspiring “Renaissance” education in a spectacular setting. Our classic curriculum grounds children in the humanities, the arts and sciences and provides models of goodness and courage to carry with them into further education and life as active agents for the good. Children love to learn at Wildcat Canyon Community Waldorf School.

More than smart.

We are taking a COVID break and closing for the 2020-21 school year. To inquire about our programming for 2021-22, please fill out the inquiry form.

The Wildcat Canyon Community Waldorf School application process begins each fall for the next school year for all grade levels. For 2021-22 we are accepting applications for PreK through 5th grade. Candidates are urged to apply early. Decisions are mailed in March.
