Getting to Know Berkshire Waldorf School

Since in-person opportunities to get to know us are limited this year, we’ve created a virtual introductory series. To register for any of these events, click on your child’s program button on the “How to Apply” page, and create an account in our parent portal, Ravenna (if you haven’t already). You’ll be able to access registration for any and all of these events there. See you soon!

Step A: Virtual Visit

Join Admissions Director Robyn Coe for this look into the daily life of our vibrant education for toddlers through eighth graders. Learn more about the curriculum and programs at BWS, and the application process for prospective families. All are welcome; adults only. No need to complete a school application to attend (although please go ahead if you’re ready!), but this visit is a required step in the application process. Update: Live Virtual Visit dates are complete. Please email to receive a recording.

Step B: Becoming a Berkshire Waldorf Family

A Berkshire Waldorf education is collaborative, active, delightful and effective. BWS teachers make a bold commitment: to partner with you to nurture your child’s healthy learning and growing for a lifetime.

Join this live, virtual workshop to meet BWS teachers, administrators and alumni. During the evening, you’ll discover more about joining BWS–a learning community based on warmth, connection and mutual support–and becoming a Waldorf family.

All current and prospective parents and caregivers are welcome. Update: Since this event has passed, please email to receive a recording. Adults only, please. For applicants, we ask that you complete this prerequisite in addition to your child’s teacher interview.
