FOUNDING A SCHOOL
One Step at a Time
Shade Canyon School has been authorized as a tuition-free, Waldorf-inspired public charter school. We will open our doors in Kelseyville, California, in September 2023.
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!
