Why Choose Earthschooling?
|Earthschooling is unique among educational programs in that it offers a combination of options that no other program offers. This unique experience has been evolving since we started as the first online Waldorf curriculum in 1994. Here are some of the highlights:
|1. Different Levels & Experiences: With Earthschooling you can choose to purchase a Core Bundle of curriculum with all the written instruction you need, you can purchase Curriculum Packages with teacher tutorials, or you can purchase Living Lessons that allow you both video lessons for your student AND the written curriculum as well! And you don’t need to be worried about making the ‘wrong’ choice because…
|2. You Can Change Your Experience Any Time: With Earthschooling we always offer you credit for your past purchases so if you purchase a Core Bundle and want to upgrade to a Curriculum Package or Living Lesson you receive credit for your previous purchase.
|3. Diversity: We are diverse and inclusive in all our content and in our teaching staff and contributors as well. We also include International content to accommodate our students around the world.
|4. Our Curriculum is Vertically and Horizontally Aligned: This means that all of our curriculum from preschool to high school builds on the previous years’ experiences. This also means that within each grade the lessons have a relationship and are often complimentary.

We offer full curriculum experiences for preschool through Highschool that include all your math, science, history, language, humanities, art, and handwork.
