Education may be the most important decision you make for your child. Its value extends far beyond the classroom, shaping a child’s experience throughout his or her lifetime. We consider tuition an investment in the future, and also seek to create a school community that is diverse, inclusive, educationally enriching and rewarding for all involved. The Acorn School of Charleston is committed to working with every current and prospective parent to strive to make the gift of a Waldorf education possible.
