Waldorf educational philosophy

How to apply

We continue to accept applications for Preschool and Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year until classes are full.

Grades 1-8: we continue to accept applications for the 2020-21 school year for all grades classes on a space-available basis. Please inquire about openings in specific classes.

Applications for the Toddler & Nursery Childcare Program (16 months – 36 months) are accepted on a rolling, space-available basis throughout the year.

Our Waldorf educational philosophy is best understood in person. That’s why we require all applicants to schedule a tour and if you decide to apply, spend time with your child’s prospective teacher or class. We are currently offering virtual tours and interviews with the admissions office! Click the link above to schedule a virtual meeting.

Once you have visited campus or met with our admissions team (virtually!) and experienced our school, we invite you to complete our simple online application.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our admissions team via email at admissions@clws.org or phone 612.767.1502.



Please contact us to schedule an adults-only tour (Now conducting virtual tours and meetings!)or attend any one of our information events to explore the Waldorf educational philosophy. Families are also welcome to contact the admissions office at admissions@clws.org or 612.767.1502 for more information.



If you liked what you saw on your (virtual) visit, complete our simple online application.



Finally, to make sure we’re right for you, we invite your child to spend up to three days with their peers and prospective teacher. We are currently conducting all family and student interviews virtually, but are looking forward to getting to know you all more through this experience.
