Dear Prospective Parents,

Welcome to Admissions at Rudolf Steiner School. We are here to help you explore our school and work through the application process. Our admissions team will introduce you to the richness of Waldorf education and our engaged and dynamic community.


Our Program

For our students, mathematics, music, science, literature, writing and history are not simply subjects to be read about and tested but experienced in a nourishing and supportive environment. Through Waldorf education, Steiner students learn to cultivate their intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities as part of becoming confident individuals. Our school is best experienced by visiting, and talking with our students and teachers in person.

Our Campus

The Lower and Upper Schools at Rudolf Steiner School are located in two historic townhouses on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, one block away from Central Park. Our Early Childhood and Lower School students enjoy the nearby park daily for play and learning. The students at our Upper School, Grades 7-12, take inspiration from the park’s green space and Museum Mile – the city is a vital extension of their classroom. We invite you to explore our school at an open house and to attend one of our many school events.
