Consistent with our mission, Aurora Waldorf School is not just a school for children, but a school for families. From our parent engagement program to the many community events offered throughout the year, we strive to be a place where parents can find their own personal growth right alongside their students. As Waldorf educators, we know that our school is only strong when all members of the community come together to strengthen one another.


Welcome, Alumni! By virtue of your years spent at AWS, you have become part of our extended family, a community that continues to grow with each graduating class. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you remain an integral part of the Aurora Waldorf family! Let’s stay connected.


In our celebration of festivals, we strive to find in each its human connection with the rhythms of the earth, which are common throughout every culture and religion. We believe that festive ceremonies associated with these universal experiences help reveal the deeper significance in everyday occurrences and foster inclusiveness.


The Aurora Waldorf School Newsletter is required reading for all families and supporters of the school. Published monthly, it includes up-to-date information, poems, events, and news. Please check the school calendar for distribution dates; deadlines for submissions are generally the Tuesday before being emailed on Friday. Extra paper copies are available for pick-up in the lobby.

Study Groups & Classes

Since its inception, Aurora Waldorf School has been supported by a regular, weekly anthroposophical study group on Monday evenings from 7:00 - 8:15 pm. We also periodically host a Foundation Studies class that provides the requisite background for those interested in pursuing Waldorf teaching.

For information about either of these, please contact Jane Ried, (716) 655-2029 ext. 106.
