International Students


Each year, high school aged students from all over the world — from Asia to Europe to South America — embark on their high school careers with us. We value the cultural diversity and the individual gifts international students bring to our community.

Kimberton Waldorf School, founded in 1941, is the second-oldest Waldorf School in North America. Our school is located in Kimberton, Pennsylvania, on a 425-acre campus with rolling hills, a biodynamic dairy farm, a bubbling creek, a rich forest, and beautiful buildings. Nestled in farm country, yet only 40 minutes from the vibrant city of Philadelphia, our region is rich in cultural activities, history, entertainment, and outdoor recreation.

Our international student program allows high school students to step into a different culture while continuing their education, and has many wonderful features:

  • A safe and inclusive community, caring faculty and staff, individual attention, easy to navigate campus, and excellent academic programs.
  • Opportunities for students to develop social, spiritual, and leadership skills by taking part in music, theatre, athletics, clubs, outdoor exploration, and community service.
  • A unique chance to meet new friends, gain proficiency in another language, and learn more about themselves and the world around them.
  • Students stay with host families, who have a special interest in cross-cultural exchange, and look forward to opening their hearts and their homes.
