Asheville Waldorf School:

The Asheville Waldorf School is entering its twelfth school year and became an associate member of WECAN in 2017 and of AWSNA in 2018. Our organization consists of a cohesive and striving Faculty, a Board of Directors that draws members from both the Parent body and the community, a committed Administration, and a loving and involved community of parents and families.

Asheville, North Carolina:

Asheville is an ideal place to live, well known and visited for its beautiful outdoors (it is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and three National Forests, and at the confluence of two major rivers), its abundance of activity options that come with the landscape and ecosystem, and its rich arts, crafts, and music culture. Asheville’s many restaurants and microbreweries make it a highly sought out tourist destination. Local sustainable agriculture is also a hallmark of this town, which supports seventeen Farmers Markets for less than 100,000 residents. If you like to eat local organic food, participate in public music events (like community chorus), and be immersed in the arts, it is a great place where you will be warmly welcomed.
