Tours - Experience Waldorf education in action!

Many of our school festivals and events are open to the public including the Holiday Fair, May Fair Festival, theater productions, musical performances and more. If you would like to receive a CWS e-newsletter to learn more about our upcoming community events, send us an email request by clicking here.

School Tours and Orientations provide the most in-depth opportunity to experience and learn about the Chicago Waldorf School. These are designed for adults only (parents and teachers) and begin with a school tour followed by an orientation on Waldorf philosophy and pedagogy. There is ample time for questions and further discussion. A display of curriculum, student projects and a variety of other information and materials are also available. For prospective high school parents, we offer an in-depth tour of the high school and a round table discussion with high school teachers and students. 

Attendance at a School Tour and Orientation is an essential part of the application and enrollment process.
