Choosing a school that is right for you and your child is a difficult decision to make. We at
Juniper Ridge offer every child the opportunity to engage in a rich cultural experience focusing on healthy, strong relationships, the academics and the arts. At Juniper Ridge an important
piece to the program is engaging the family to participate and be an extension of the learning in
the classroom. Because of this unique approach, families interested in enrolling their child at JRCS are asked to observe the following process:
- Become familiar with the Waldorf developmental and artistic approach to education.
- Read and agree to school policies and procedures described in the Juniper Ridge Community School Family Handbook
- Attend a mandatory school information meeting prior to the February 27, 2015 deadline. JRCS informational meetings are held every Wednesday from January 7 – February 25, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Please see our Events Calendar for more information.
- Complete and submit a Juniper Ridge Community School 2015-2016 Enrollment Application and a $50 application fee by 8:00 pm on February 27, 2015.
