The mission of Journey School is to educate K-8 students in Southern California, guided by the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education, in a public school setting. Journey School is dedicated to the optimal development of the intellect, social-emotional well-being, and physical capabilities of each student by artistically presenting core academic subjects.
Mission, Vision and Values: Rooted in the core principles of Public Waldorf Education, Journey School awakens curiosity in the whole child and cultivates ingenuity, compassion, and moral courage, leading Journey children towards a world of lifelong learning. The program is available for all students in K-8 and is dedicated to the optimal development of the whole child in educating the Head, the Heart and the Hands.
HEAD – Thinking/Ingenuity: Journey’s Waldorf-led faculty fosters academic growth throughout the grades, by balancing imagination, risk-taking, and critical thinking with respect for the individual child.
HEART – Feeling/Compassion: Illuminating the goodness of what the world offers, Journey and its family-like community fiercely protect each child with an abundance of kindness, generosity, and gratitude for purposeful learning.
HANDS – Willing/Moral Courage: Holding students to the highest standards, the Journey community champions each child in their development for shouldering the willingness to fearlessly advocate social justice and environmental awareness. Centered on relationships, the Journey School community strives to develop as human beings so that each may bring their highest potential forth in service of their families, communities, and all of humanity.
