Our High School provides a co-educational college preparatory program to approximately 85 students in the 4 grades. Small class sizes and faculty who are dedicated to the intellectual, artistic, and social growth of every student provide a unique environment for students to develop into well-rounded individuals ready to pursue their passions and contribute their gifts to the world.
The Main Lesson lies at the heart of Waldorf Education. During each 4-5-week Main Lesson Block students take up an immersive study of a particular topic for 90 minutes or more every morning. Mathematics, English, Science, History, and special cross-disciplinary topics are taught during Main Lesson blocks in each of the 4 years.
Year-long and semester-length courses including World Languages, Mathematics, Art, English, Laboratory Science, Eurythmy, History, Music, and more round out the day. Over the course of the 4 years each student has the opportunity to craft their own increasingly specialized program through their choice of elective offerings and through their participation in Clubs and Athletics.
Students are accompanied through their 4 years by a Personal Advisor who guides individual progress, and by two Class Advisors for each grade. Class trips, Community Engagement projects, and seasonal festivals create a strong community fabric within each class, with the entire school, and with the broader world of New York City and beyond.
