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.


Our Mission

The mission of Maine Coast Waldorf School is to awaken the highest potential in every student by fostering clarity of thought, warmth of heart, and strength of resolve to make a difference in the world.

Our Philosophy

We develop curious, confident, well-rounded students by engaging their hands, their hearts and their minds.

We measure our classrooms in acres rather than square feet so that our students appreciate the world around them.

We foster independent thinking, creative problem solving and a sense of social responsibility because we believe these are skills students need to be successful in life.

An education both timeless and timely.
