Admissions Application process

We offer rolling admission as space is available and do not select students on the basis of abilities or accomplishments. Students are selected whose parents desire a Waldorf education for their child and who will bring diversity and depth to their group of peers. We accept students with disabilities on the above basis when we are able to meet their needs.

 New families are encouraged to attend a Tea & Play, Parent Open House, or Family Open Day. Please see our upcoming community events HERE. You may also join us every week school is in session for "Walk-Through Wednesdays" at 9:00 am. At our events and tours, you can peek in on the simple joys of the New Amsterdam classrooms, discuss our programs in depth, and speak with our teachers and school director. 

After visiting our school, you may apply online. The application process for each of our programs is outlined below.
