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. Parents and prospective students can attend these events together.
Next, you can submit a completed application including:
- A $50 non-refundable application fee (check can be made out to LCWS)
- A recent photo of your child
- Previous school records and transcripts
- All student evaluations and testing reports
- Student portion of the application
- Two teacher recommendations
If you are applying for tuition adjustment, please fill out the SSS application along with your school application before February 1 for the following school year.
After receiving your completed application, the Admissions Director will contact you. We will schedule a half-day visit for the student and also schedule an interview with two high school faculty members, the parents, and the student.
We will notify you of the 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 high 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.
