FOUNDING A SCHOOL

One Step at a Time

Shade Canyon School has been authorized as a public charter school: a school of choice that is publicly funded but independently run. Our doors will open in Kelseyville, CA, in September 2023

with grades TK-2, then add one grade each year until we offer grades TK-8.

Our curriculum is based on principles of Public Waldorf education. We believe this enriching approach to education should be an option for all who desire it. 

Our passion and dedication to bring this enlivening model of education to our community drives our daily rhythms and continues to open up new horizons.

It is a long and mighty road, and we are deeply thankful that our paths have crossed. Please see below to learn more about where we are in the process of building Shade Canyon School and stay tuned for updates!
