How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Waldorf Sarasota. We realize that choosing a school is one of the most significant decisions a parent makes in shaping a child’s life and we are here to assist you in any way we can.

We are now enrolling new students in our Nursery, Kindergarten and Grades programs for the 2015-16 school year. The admissions office accepts applications year-round, with applications for immediate placement subject to availability.

The following steps comprise the application and enrollment process:

1. Attend an Open House, or schedule a private tour

We have many open houses throughout the year. These are the best opportunities to meet our teachers and families, experience what goes on in the classroom, and have your questions answered. Our next open house is on February 28th.

2. Submit an application

You may download applications for all of our programs here.  All applications (with the exception of Little Seedlings)  require a $40 application fee.  This application fee is waived if submitted 2 days after attending an enrollment event.  (Tour, Open house or Waldorf Weekend)

3. Teacher Meeting

Shortly after you submit your child’s application for the Nursery, Kindergarten, Grades or Upper Grades program, our admissions director will contact you to set up a meeting with the class teacher to discuss how your child could be best supported by Waldorf education.

4. Finalizing your enrollment

Upon acceptance and enrollment, signed paperwork and $100 tuition deposit  is required in order to secure you child’s space. Before beginning school, parents will attend an orientation with our Administrative staff.

 Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility – these three forces are the very nerve of education.  - Rudolf Steiner
