about spirit of the lake community school
Spirit of the Lake Community School (SLCS) began in 2009 as a book group of parents interested in learning more about Waldorf Education. We opened the doors in August of 2012 as a non-profit, private school inspired by Waldorf Education methods, and employing Waldorf-trained faculty. SLCS aspires to educate the whole child, equally engaging the developing body, mind, emotions and spirit. Our curriculum is rooted in Rudolf Steiner’s unique humanitarian views, and lessons are purposefully crafted with an understanding of human development which addresses the needs of the growing child. The foundation of our early childhood program is based on play, movement and oral learning. As children progress through the grades, the curriculum becomes increasingly challenging and academically stimulating. At the core of all teachings is a rigorous education infused with creativity that stimulates critical thinking, develops emotional intelligence, and inspires artistic expression. SLCS instruction is age-appropriate and rejects indoctrination of its students, opting instead for laying a solid foundation for creative and independent thinking. Our school’s educational program includes a balance of language, mathematics, natural science, social science, humanities, fine arts, practical arts, performing arts, physical education and practical work appropriate to the ages, needs and abilities of students.
With a vibrant parent body, devoted Board of Directors and inspired, committed teachers we continue bringing life to the vision we have for our school.
