A Leader in Education for
Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties

Sierra Waldorf School is dedicated to cultivating the capacities of each child through a developmentally respectful education based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf Education. We create an environment that respects the individuality of each child, their higher spiritual nature and their connection to the programs whole. The Sierra Waldorf School strives to create a community of caring adults who are committed to self-development, social responsibility and servant leadership.

Waldorf education is the fastest growing independent educational movement in the world, with more than 900 Waldorf schools in 83 countries. The Waldorf curriculum is broad and comprehensive and based on Rudolf Steiner’s picture of the developing child. From its gentle beginning in the Kindergarten and Lower School to a rigorous, yet cooperative, learning environment in the Upper Grades, a Sierra Waldorf School education is a gift that prepares children and young adults to embrace learning.

Many of our graduates have become the Valedictorian and Saluditorian of both Sonora and Summerville High School and accepted to top colleges in the U.S.
