Comox Valley Waldorf School Closing
Just recently, the CVWS Board made the difficult decision to close our school at the end of the 2019-20 school year. To learn more about how this came to be, please read this article.
However, there are a group of dedicated parents that are eager to start a new version of our school and keep the Waldorf community alive. If you are interested in learning more, please join our mailing list by filling out the form below.

The Comox Valley Waldorf School is a non-profit, independent school in the Comox Valley, providing Waldorf Education since 2011. Dedicated to nurturing the whole child, our developmentally based curriculum is rich in the arts, music, movement, nature and engaged hands on learning.
Our programs are enriched with experiences in nature, an active outdoor program for the grades, and the celebration of festivals from all over the world as well as those marked by the Comox Valley. These help children develop a reverence for the goodness in others and in the world around us, which brings with it purpose and meaning in life. Our school encourages compassion, conscience and wonder, with activities that stimulate imagination and creative and critical thinking. Through practicing development-centered education our teachers open the students’ eyes to the world around them with ever deepening levels of sophistication. We take pride in attending to the health of each child physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually for their own sense of self so they may continue to flourish long after their school days are finished.
"I am impressed by the Waldorf teaching philosophies. My three grandkids are living proof of this successful approach! But the school offers much more than high academic standards. They are creating a generation of independent thinkers with leadership qualities, social skills, compassion, and a recognition of their place in the universe." - Jacqui Graham - Grandparent
