Waldorf School of Louisville

A nonprofit organization

As an independent, not-for-profit school, the Waldorf School of Louisville relies on fundraising, grants, and donations to make up the difference between income generated through tuition, and the actual cost of operating the school.

The mission of the Waldorf School of Louisville is to guide our students on a path of inner development toward a sense of responsibility, and freedom to unfold as human beings.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Waldorf schools are committed to developing the human potential of each child to its fullest. Admission to the school is open to everyone, without regard to race, sex, creed, religion, national origin, or ethnicity. In company with many other tuition-based independent schools, Waldorf schools are actively seeking ways to increase the economic and ethnic diversity of their student populations. We do not discriminate enrollment, admission, or hiring based on religion, race, identity, gender, or sexual orientation. It is a fundamental goal of our education to bring students to an understanding and experience of the common humanity of all the world’s peoples, transcending the stereotypes, prejudices, and divisive barriers of classification by sex, identity, race, religion, and nationality.
