There is no better way to understand the Waldorf School of Garden City then by spending time on campus. Take a campus tour, learn about admission and tuition assistance in detail and speak with students in the hallway. During your visit, observe the day-to-day life of students here. Be proactive. Ask a few questions, and then ask some more. Tours meet in the Main Entrance Lobby and are conducted by the Enrollment Director. Contact us to schedule a personal tour or RSVP to attend an Open House or one of our monthly Admissions Breakfast meetings.
Tours meet in the Main Entrance Lobby and are conducted by senior administrators who will be on hand to answer any curricular or admissions questions you may have.
