2015 Walk-A-Thon on Belle Isle

This Friday, October 16th, Detroit Waldorf School (DWS) will host its annual Walk-a-Thon fundraiser on Belle Isle. Students from preschool through grade 8 will traverse a course on Belle Isle for the bulk of the school day, joined by DWS founder Amelia Wilhelm, who is 91 and a Bloomfield resident.

Detroit Waldorf School provides private education, although many students are assisted with their tuition. The walk-a-thon’s fundraising goal of $48,500 supports curriculum costs, since tuition does not cover the school’s operating costs entirely.

Support for the 2015 Detroit Waldorf School Walk-A-Thon is tremendously important to maintaining the school's long-term viability.


About Detroit Waldorf School

 The Detroit Waldorf Schoolprovides innovative teaching through the method developed more than a century ago by Rudolf Steiner. A Waldorf education is designed to cultivate children's inherent curiosity and love of learning. Our approach “brings forth” the gifts that all children possess so that they will develop clear, creative thoughts, balance and compassion in their feelings, and initiative and conscience in their work.

Fully accredited by ISACS (Independent Schools of the Central States) and AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools of North America), Detroit Waldorf School offers a curriculum rich in academics, arts, music and physical education. Our aim is to graduate students who are capable of independent, critical and creative thinking and who will enter adult life with the confidence and knowledge needed to take on the next level of challenges.

The mission of the Detroit Waldorf School is to provide a rich and dynamic pre-K-8th grade Waldorf education to a geographically, racially, and socio-economically diverse student body in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. Located in Detroit’s Indian Village neighborhood, DWS is a community dedicated to helping each child develop his or her full human potential: clear, creative thought and expression, balance and compassion in feeling; and conscience and initiative in action.
