Covid-19 Plan

Connection in community has always been an important tenet at Maine Coast Waldorf School. Now, more than ever, we stand together as a school community.

Our extensive plan includes universal masking, social distancing, and outdoor classrooms on our beautiful 75 acres of fields, forests and gardens


Founded in 1984, Maine Coast Waldorf serves some 295 students from early childhood through high school. Our early childhood-12th grade campus in Freeport offers our students state-of-the-art buildings, as well as 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.
