About Lake Champlain Waldorf School
Founded in 1984, Lake Champlain Waldorf School is Vermont’s oldest and largest Waldorf School. Our Pre-K through 8th Grade campus is located in Shelburne, on 22-acres of forested Nature Conservancy land with many opportunities for outdoor education and exploration at our doorstep. Our Grade School also has a formal pedagogical relationship with a biodynamic farm just a short walk from school.
In 2014, we opened our new High School campus, just five minutes away, featuring a beautifully designed post and beam facility; the High School property is adjacent to the Shelburne Museum. Shelburne is 10 miles south of Burlington, a busy cultural and educational center. We are close to the many recreational opportunities afforded by Lake Champlain and our beautiful Green Mountain State. We are a full member of AWSNA and WECAN and have recently completed an extensive self-study for accreditation.
