Housatonic Valley Waldorf School is the only
Waldorf grade school in Connecticut, serving children from birth to 8th
Grade. Our families come from around the neighborhood and around the
world, and share a desire to provide their child with an education that
will make a lasting difference in their lives and their families with a
vibrant, supportive community.
During the eight+ years the students are with us they travel from fairy
tales to Shakespeare, from dreamy watercolor painting to the precision
and exactness of geometry, from the wonder of nature to botany,
chemistry, physics and physiology. These academic achievements coincide
with an ever-increasing self and social awareness as the students’
capacities unfold and are encouraged in a developmentally appropriate
manner, in a safe and reverent environment. The Housatonic Valley
Waldorf School is a place where your child will be truly known.
Waldorf education develops lifelong learners and remains with graduates
as a touchpoint for that which is true, good, and beautiful. Repeatedly,
our Admissions team hears how well-prepared HVWS graduates are
socially, academically, and personally. They carry a quiet confidence
about their capabilities and potential: eager to engage in class
discussions, confident when conversing with adults, infused with
creative curiosity. An HVWS education lasts a lifetime.
