Celebrating 50 Years!

Celebrating 50 Years!

When the founders started Hawthorne Valley 50 years ago, they did so with a hope—a hope that this new project would turn into a place that would allow people, young and old, to reconnect with the natural world. Click the above photo to learn more!

Music at HVS

Music at HVS

Music is a key part of our Waldorf curriculum, with students beginning to learn the recorder in first grade and then building on those basic skills each year, moving from recorders to strings to woodwinds and percussion—and of course, we sing throughout all the grades! Click here to learn more about how we’ve adapted our music curriculum this year due to Covid.


Each child’s journey is unique. As Waldorf educators, we strive to impact their journeys in ways that are both powerful and lifelong. How can we best connect children to their natural and wondrous abilities? How can we foster an environment fertile enough to spark their highest sense of purpose? When we allow them to have wonder it’s a gift, and it’s a seed that is planted in them that will grow into adulthood.  And, if we can do this, if we can plant the seeds of joy, and love, and gratitude through our teaching and through our support, then we are giving the child a gift for their future.
