Our Programs

Everyone has a story to share. The story of Alabama Waldorf School is set in the heart of Birmingham, Alabama. In a world where hurried schedules and unrest threatens to drown out the delicate melodies of childhood, a little wooded school of wonder thrives in the Crestwood neighborhood of Birmingham on a four-acre sanctuary. 


Nursery & Kindergarten

Early Childhood Education

Alabama Waldorf Early Childhood Education program emphasizes play, creativity, and nature, nurturing young learners' imagination and growth.




Elementary School

Alabama Waldorf Elementary School program fosters well-rounded development through arts-integrated learning, nurturing curiosity and critical thinking.




Middle School

Alabama Waldorf Middle School offers interdisciplinary studies, focusing on hands-on experiences and independent thinking for pre-adolescents.

Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility — these three forces are the very nerve of education.
— Rudolf Steiner, Founder of Waldorf Education
