When you join Corvallis Waldorf School, you are joining a community of parents and professional educators who are striving to create an unparalleled educational opportunity for children based on the pedagogical insights of Rudolf Steiner. We provide a developmentally appropriate, arts-integrated education to promote the development of the whole child. Our school fosters the intellect, nurtures the imagination, and recognizes the emotional life of each child. Our aim is to inspire children to live engaged and successful lives, prepared to meet the demands of their world. In Steiner’s words, “Our highest endeavor [is] to develop free human beings who, of themselves, are able to give purpose and direction to their lives.”

Our school started in 1993 in the homes of dedicated and inspired parents in Corvallis. As the school grew, the community occupied a local church building, then an elementary school campus. In August of 2013, we purchased the 12 acre campus and buildings, and we have begun the process of developing the buildings and grounds to suit our needs. We are currently a developing member school with AWSNA. We serve students ranging from parent-child through 8th Grade, and we are growing and welcoming more students each year.

The school is ideally situated, just five minutes from downtown Corvallis, Oregon. Corvallis is an award-winning city that has been recognized as one of the top ten places to live in the country. The school is within 90 minutes of the Portland Metropolitan area, world class skiing, and the famous Oregon coast. Corvallis has a residential population of 55,345 and is home to Oregon State University, making it an ideal small town for people of all ages.
