“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings,

who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.” —Rudolf Steiner

City Garden School is a school in Columbia, Missouri inspired by Waldorf Education. We offer a full-time school for kindergarten through 6th grade, and a part-time homeschool enrichment and middle school enrichment programs. For the 2022- 2023 school year, we are holding the majority of our classes at Karis Church in Columbia. We have partnered with Camp Takimina and offer nature-intensive blocks for several weeks in an outdoor camp setting. We continue to have Outdoor Fridays every week at Camp Takimina.


At City Garden School, we believe wisdom begins with wonder. Education is not just a matter of memorization and test-taking. We endeavor to bring a curriculum that balances academic rigor to educate the whole child through art and practical skills, music, movement, and social and moral development. Students learn through experience. We are proud to nurture children as they find meaning and purpose in life with confidence and a sense of responsibility.
