High School Initiative update

The Central Vermont High School Initiative is delighted to announce an array of activities toward the opening of a 2013 high school program. There have been many inquiries for both 9th and 10th grade and we will consider offering a 10th grade next year if there is sufficient interest and enrollment. Our plans already call for offering a full grade 9 program in the fall. Enrollment materials will be available soon.

We are in the process of applying to become a Vermont Approved Independent School. We have an abundance of well qualified teachers applying from all over the world. Nearly every applicant has experience with pioneering a Waldorf High School, and all bring a wealth of multidisciplinary skills and abilities. We are delighted to be a top choice for these masterful candidates due to our location in Central Vermont as well as our vision to offer a secondary Waldorf education that is available to all who seek it.

We are finishing negotiations for our carrying faculty members and we are pleased to announce that we have a thorough academic and artistic array of skills represented in these teachers. They say that Waldorf teachers are lifelong learners and it really is apparent in the variety of skills every candidate possesses. We look forward to announcing our hires in the coming weeks as we sign contracts and move toward hiring additional adjunct faculty.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be presenting our first Board of Trustees of the Initiative in the coming weeks. We are finalizing details of the physical campus site with Goddard College, and we will have opportunities to see the space soon. We look forward to hearing your questions and meeting your students!

Please make an appointment to meet with Stephan Vdoviak if you or your child would like to find out more about our program offerings. Appointments can be made by contacting Joan Kahn at info.cvhsi@gmail.com, or 322-4408.

We are energized to bring Waldorf inspired high school curriculum to all students in this region who desire it.
