Strengthening Inner Confidence for Creative and Intellectual Success and Purpose
At Charlottesville Waldorf School, every child tries a variety of skills, learning them richly and deeply. The result is a blossoming of each individual’s inner confidence: certainty and evidence that they can tackle anything out in the world. It’s a liberal arts education brought to the grade school that ensures both creative and intellectual success.
The Charlottesville Waldorf School began in 1980 when a group of parents (and one pair of grandparents) met in the kitchen of a farmhouse about twenty-five miles south of Charlottesville to discuss the possibility of opening a Waldorf school. This study group secured a space and a teacher, and in September 1982 the school opened as the Crossroads Waldorf School, with twelve students.
In 2010 CWS moved to the current campus in Charlottesville, with custom-built LEEDS certified buildings and a new name – the Charlottesville Waldorf School.
Over the years, the Charlottesville Waldorf School has been committed to providing Waldorf Education for children and families in central Virginia, sparking curiosity about the world and preparing students for a lifelong love of learning. Our school currently offers preschool through 8th grade, as well as Parent and Child classes for children as young as 18 months.
