Waldorf education addresses the child as no other education does. ... By the time they reach us at the college and university level, these students are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. Such students possess the eye of the discoverer, and the compassionate heart of the reformer which, when joined to a task, can change the planet.
— Arthur Zajonc, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Physics, Amherst College

As of 2020, Linden alumni have enrolled in 56 colleges and universities.
All LWS alumni are invited to join a continental network of Waldorf alumni here.
We enjoy seeing former students at Linden and will make every effort to accommodate those who would like to visit during the school day. Visits must be requested in writing two days in advance, if possible, by contacting the office with the name of the student and the date and time of the requested visit. The office will contact the class teacher(s) to determine whether the request can be accommodated and notify the alum or parent/ guardian. Under no circumstances are parents/guardians allowed to leave an unenrolled minor on campus without permission from the office. We must have an Emergency Contact Form (available in the office) on file for unenrolled minors who are approved to be on campus without a parent. All visiting students must adhere to the LWS dress code and student conduct requirements outlined in the Family Handbook. Linden reserves the right to decline or modify requests for visits, as necessary.
Nashville has returned to Phase 2 of the Roadmap for Reopening Nashville. Employees should continue to work from home. Our COVID-19 page contains more information.
