We are delighted that you are considering the Lake Champlain Waldorf School. Our admissions process is an opportunity for you, your child and the faculty to get to know one another and discover whether the educational programs at LCWS will meet the needs of your student and the expectations of your family.
To begin the admissions process, we invite you to explore our website. You can then attend an Open House or an Observation Morning. You can also call the Admissions Office, (802)985-2827 ext. 12 to schedule a tour of the school and a one-on-one conversation with the Admissions Director, Pam Graham.
Next, submit a completed application including:
After receiving your completed application, the Admissions Director will contact you. We will schedule a two-day visit for your child (with the exception of students applying to the first grade) during which time an educational assessment is scheduled.
If you are applying for first grade, we will schedule an educational assessment for your child. The assessment helps us gather the information we need to ensure our school will meet the needs of your student and that he or she is applying for the appropriate class. We will also schedule an interview with you, the class teacher and the Admissions Director. This interview helps the teacher gain a full picture of your child and helps you learn more about the class and the curriculum.We will notify you of our decision within two weeks of the completed admissions process. Within two weeks of acceptance, you can enroll your student by submitting a signed enrollment agreement and a tuition deposit.
When our grade school classes are full, we start a waiting pool. We consider the order in which the applications are received, if the student has a sibling already enrolled in the school, if the student’s parent is a teacher in the school, and if the student is transferring from another Waldorf school.
