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. For now, of course, we can only help to coordinate virtual reunions or class events. Please contact if you are interested.

Looking to support your alma mater?

With our Capital Campaign, we're currently raising money to transform our blacktop into a lush outdoor environment with opportunities for play and education. While we love our urban setting, we're excited to bring nature directly to our students, just a step out of our front door.

Support our Capital Campaign

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. We're always in need of support to keep our beautiful school thriving.

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."
