Welcome to Cape Ann Waldorf School
... in the journey.
... in letting a child have a childhood.
... in the relationship between teacher and parent.
... that academic excellence comes through a rich, fulfilling educational path that honors the child's development.
... that educating the whole child -- body, soul and spirit -- raises healthy, confident, grounded and enriched human beings.
Whether you are looking for a warm and nurturing parent-child class, a nursery or kindergarten program, or a rich and deeply challenging grade school education for your child, we welcome your family to explore our education and community. New students may enter at any level upon acceptance into the school.
Founded in 1986, Cape Ann Waldorf School is a member of the worldwide organization of over 1,000 Waldorf schools in 60 countries around the world. Offering a classical academic curriculum, Waldorf education supports the natural development of children at each specific age by engaging their imagination, feelings and active bodies in the joy of learning. Waldorf Education is based on a profound understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child, making learning deeply meaningful and satisfying. While mainstream schools often emphasize an intellectual approach to education, Waldorf schools balance thinking, feeling and physical activity in all lessons, educating "head, heart and hands" and teaching the right subject at the right time. Confident, compassionate and creative thinkers, our students are ready to go forth with a strong sense of self, reverence for life and service to their communities. We warmly invite you to learn more about the advantages of a Waldorf private school education for your children.
The school is located on a 10-acre campus at Moraine Farm in North Beverly, Massachusetts (for directions, click here). If you have questions or would like to schedule a visit to the school, please call our Admissions Director, Kelly Hiselman, at 978-927-1936.
