Alumni

Welcome back, Alumni!

As members of our community, you are vital to the legacy and life of our school and we look forward to keeping you connected to CWS. Please send updates and contact information to alumni@chicagowaldorf.org or visit our Chicago Waldorf School Alumni Facebook page to stay in touch. Take a look at all of our events on the CWS Calendar and come back and visit us for the Holiday Fair, the May Fair or an Alumni Reunion. You can also join other alums as a volunteer at the school! We can always use extra hands for Fairs and Festivals or ongoing service projects.

Reunions

Whether it's been 5 years or 25 years, Chicago Waldorf School alumni love reconnecting with former classmates, and reunions are the perfect opportunity to do so. Please contact Becky Moskowitz if you are interested.

Looking to support your alma mater?

Your gift can have an immediate impact on the current generation of Waldorf students! A gift to the Annual Fund will help offset the school’s budget, which means more money for teacher’s salaries, tuition assistance, and student services/activities.

According to a national study of Waldorf graduates, 89% are “highly satisfied” in their choice of occupation.* Those are impressive numbers, and CWS alumni are no exception. Waldorf students are highly sought after by institutions of higher learning. Arthur Zajonc, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Physics at Amherst College loves having Waldorf students in his classroom: "By the time they reach us at the college and university level, these students are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. Such students possess the eye of the discoverer, and the compassionate heart of the reformer which, when joined to a task, can change the planet.

"If you've had the experience of binding a book, knitting a sock, playing a recorder, then you feel that you can build a rocket ship—or learn a software program you've never touched. It's not bravado, just a quiet confidence. There is nothing you can't do. Why couldn't you? Why couldn't anybody?"— Peter Nitze, Waldorf and Harvard graduate and Director of an aerospace company
