Your Gift Helps Cultivate Independent, Engaged and Creative Thinkers!

The Waldorf School at Moraine farm was founded in 1986 in the Gloucester home of Roswitha Trayes, as the Cape Ann Waldorf School, which would later become Waldorf School at Moraine Farm.

Donor support helps Waldorf School at Moraine Farm students and community learn to engage in the world and contribute meaningfully to society. Thanks to our donors, each year our student body reflects a range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Our goal is to provide a Waldorf education to anyone who truly desires it; therefore, our community is more economically diverse than other independent schools on the North Shore. Since its inception, the School has partnered with the House of Peace in Ipswich, and offered several full scholarships to children whose families have fled war-torn countries such as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Serbia, and Iraq.

“It is our hope that, many years from now, as students, parents and faculty walk the grounds of Waldorf School at Moraine Farm, they will look at all that has come before them with the same sense of gratitude that we do today. They will know that someone cared enough to be a steward of the gifts they received, and thought enough to pass them on.”
