Philosophy & Mission We are part of a rapidly growing international community of schools that embrace Waldorf, Education. These schools share a common philosophy that was initially developed by Rudolf Steiner. The Waldorf Schools are committed to academic excellence and offer their students a rigorous education in preparation for the further education of the child and to meet the challenges of modern life. Waldorf pedagogy nurtures healthy emotional development by conveying knowledge experientially as well as academically. The heart of the Waldorf philosophy is the belief that education is an artistic process. People are usually drawn to the Aurora Waldorf School because of the caring, personal atmosphere that is based on a deep understanding of the needs of the growing child. Through our rich curriculum and innovative teaching methods, we address the whole child, working to develop clarity in thought, balance in feeling, and conscience and initiative in action. Our rigorous academic program challenges the students to develop clear, creative thought and expression, and our nurturing social environment gives students confidence. Most of all, the close human relationships at our school help the students develop a strong sense of themselves and an awarenes of others. The groundwork for Aurora Waldorf School was laid in 1988 and has since grown into a full-fledged Waldorf School, offering Waldorf Education from pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade. We host children and adults from around the world to share the magnificence of Alaska, through conferences, workshops, trainings and educational exchanges.
