Are Waldorf schools religious?

Waldorf schools are non-sectarian and non-denominational. They educate all children, regardless of their cultural or religious backgrounds.

As part of their educational curriculum, Waldorf schools bring about recognition and understanding of all the world cultures and religions, acknowledging that there is a spiritual dimension to the human being and to all of life. Monadnock Waldorf School observes the cycle of the year through both traditional and lesser known festivals, such as Michaelmas in the autumn and Advent in the winter, that embrace the qualities of hope, courage, joy, gratitude, love and reverence.
Waldorf families come from the full spectrum of religious traditions and interests, including atheism.
