Welcome to Sunrise Waldorf School
Sunrise Waldorf School (SWS) is an independent school located in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, forty minutes north of Victoria, the capital city of BC. Supporting choice in education for discerning parents, our school attracts families from all over the globe, who have moved here especially to enroll their children at our rural Waldorf school.
Founded in 1980, we currently offer programs from early childhood through class eight. Waldorf Education is one of the fastest growing non-denominational, independent school movements in North America. Sunrise Waldorf School is a full member school of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and is recognized as a Group One Independent School by the province of British Columbia. Teachers at SWS are Waldorf trained and BC certified to teach the BC curriculum in the inspired, holistic, Waldorf way. Island Oak High School offers Waldorf inspired education for Grades 9-12 on its own campus nearby.
Nestled in the splendour of Vancouver Island, removed from the clamour of the world, our seven acre campus awaits you. Come and visit today.
