High Mowing School, founded in 1942, is the first Waldorf high school to be founded in North America and the only one to offer a boarding program.

Here on Abbot Hill there is a rich educational and social community that, over the last seven decades, has developed, changed and adjusted to meet the needs of the students, offering teenagers a unique combination of Waldorf education and community living. We are an intentionally small, friendly community of 120 students and faculty living and learning together in an inspiring and comfortable setting. Each student, day student as well as boarder, and each teacher is an active part of this community.

At High Mowing students embark on a journey of self-realization, accompanied by a gifted and committed faculty. Here, we recognize students' potentials, stir their passions, nurture their innate human sympathies, and help them develop their intellectual, artistic, and physical capacities. It is our pleasure to introduce you to High Mowing School, we welcome your inquires and look forward to getting to know more about you in this process. For additional information, please visit
