The 2020-21 academic year is a milestone for the Waldorf School of Lexington. Fifty years ago, WSL first opened its doors to students in Cambridge. Since then, Waldorf has touched thousands of lives in Greater Boston.
To build on our five decades of growth, WSL has launched the 50th Anniversary Fund: Seeds for the Future. This is a special effort to strengthen and grow the school’s capacity for the months ahead, and for years to come.
A Waldorf school is like a garden. Teachers nurture and support each child in their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Over time, these young people grow and blossom into their authentic selves.
This education prepares our students and alumni to think nimbly, to imagine new possibilities, and to meet life’s challenges with courage, enthusiasm, character, and initiative. The world needs more of this right now.
Tuition does not cover all of the school's operating expenses, so we rely on donations from our families, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends to help close the gap.
This fundraising goal is higher than in previous years, reflecting our ongoing commitment to delivering a safe, full Waldorf education. Your support will have an immediate, across-the-board impact at the school:
- Faculty compensation and professional development;
- Campus improvements and Covid-related costs including weekly Covid testing, ongoing safety protocols, and new infrastructure;
- Tuition assistance to help WSL families facing uncertain economic circumstances;
- Program enrichment for students, including the continued development of an antiracist curriculum.
We invite you to make a 100% tax-deductible gift to the 50th Anniversary Fund today. Please consider an amount that is possible and meaningful for you. Your participation is important – no gift is too small, or too large.
Together, we can keep WSL strong during these challenging times, while continuing to provide Greater Boston with a full Waldorf education for decades to come. Thank you for your support!
