Our History


The Northern Virginia Waldorf School Initiative was founded in 1998 by a group of Waldorf teachers and parents seeking to establish a Waldorf school in northern Virginia. The group met regularly for study and planning while a site search began in earnest. Its first parent-child classes were held in private homes. After three years of search, the initiative was able to rent space in the education wing of the Mount Vernon Baptist Church, its present location. The school has a wonderful working relationship with the church.
