Support from our parent-volunteers is an essential component of the Rudolf Steiner School and its community. We encourage parents to join a committee to help with festival preparations and gala planning. Parents, alumni, former parents, grandparents, teachers and administrative staff constitute the foundation of every Waldorf School’s community.

The Rudolf Steiner School relies on the generosity of current and former parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends. And the Rudolf Steiner School Fund (formerly known as the Annual Fund) provides critical, unrestricted support for the basic operations of the school: student financial aid; faculty compensation; professional development; and academic and extra-curricular programs.
