A school inspired by Waldorf education in mid-Missouri with an intellectually rich curriculum that inspires creativity and self-discovery.
“Waldorf education seeks to create a person who loves learning for its own sake, and who is loving and compassionate.”
—Ronald E. Kotzsch
City Garden School is a Waldorf-inspired school in Columbia, Missouri. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. We currently offer a full time primary school for 1st through 5th grade, in a mixed-age setting. We also offer a part-time homeschool enrichment program and a middle school enrichment program.  For the 2020- 2021 fall semester, we have partnered with Camp Takimina, and are offering an in-person school program- in an outdoor camp setting. We also have indoor school space, in the heart of the district, at Calvary Episcopal Church. Currently, due to COVID-19, our school is only utilizing our outdoor classrooms at Camp Takimina. Our curriculum aims to help children discover who they truly are, allowing them to explore multiple arts and modalities, while feeding them rich stories and experiences. We strive to give them a morally-centered curriculum and to allow time for true learning to take place. Read more about us.
