    Nestled on nineteen acres in central Texas's beautiful hill country, celebrating educational excellence since 1980, the Austin Waldorf School provides an outstanding education to students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The school is accredited through the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS), and the National Council of Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).
    The curriculum is designed to meet each stage of a student's development from early childhood, through adolescence, into young adulthood. The programs demonstrate a continued commitment to providing a well-rounded educational experience integrating academic, artistic, and practical disciplines. The Austin Waldorf School cultivates a love of learning, creative thinking, a sympathetic interest in the world, self-confidence, and an abiding moral purpose.
    In addition to a rich academic curriculum, the students are taught two foreign languages, vocal and instrumental music, handwork, woodwork, blacksmithing, fine arts, drama, and sports and games from around the world.
    At the center of the school, the experience is the individual's relationship to the greater community. While this is cultivated differently at different ages, it is an essential part of being a student here and being a citizen of the world. The students participate in community service and work experience programs, all geared to foster a sense of responsibility and empowerment in effecting change in society as a whole or only in a single person's life. Such meaningful engagement with people is one of the many unique elements of being an Austin Waldorf School student.
    The faculty at the Austin Waldorf School is dedicated to excellence and artistry in education, and many of the teachers have decades of professional experience in their fields. The parent body is stalwart and generous, and the community life is filled with student performances, festivals, a vibrant parent society, and an exciting adult education program.

    Young children live in a world of activity. To them, play is work, and work is play. At this young age, the children live firmly in their imaginative life and eagerly imitate the behaviors of those around them. The adults surrounding the young child must always be worthy of imitation. Every encounter must be meaningful and thoughtful. Our Kindergarten program embraces this understanding. In Grade school, we are working to develop the children's sense of observation. The students live very deeply in their feeling of life from age seven to fourteen. The curriculum is designed to be meaningful, valuable, and to encourage curiosity. The High School student is ready to meet abstract concepts with heightened cognitive capacities. The primary lesson curriculum is designed to respond to the questions being asked by the developing adolescent.
    The Austin Waldorf School continues to improve lives due to our faculty, staff, students, and parents' engagement. Explore our community section to learn more about our school and the opportunities we have available for you to get involved.
