About Maine Coast Waldorf School

Founded in 1984 as Merriconeag Waldorf School, Maine Coast Waldorf serves some 250 students from early childhood through high school. Between our early childhood-8th grade campus in Freeport and our high school at Pineland Farms, our students take advantage of acres of outdoor classrooms and woodland trails.

We foster independent thinking, creative problem solving, and a sense of connection to equip students for future challenges, while inspiring them to create their own opportunities.

At Maine Coast Waldorf School, we offer an education for life.
