The Waldorf high school schedule is designed to ensure a healthy and enlivening balance of academic, artistic, physical and social activities. The day is divided into three parts: main lesson, skills, and artistic classes.

Main lesson comes first in the day, provides an intensive conceptual focus on one particular subject area, and runs for an hour and forty-five minutes daily over a four-week period.

Academic skills classes follow and provide the opportunity to practice the type of skills needed for working with the conceptual foundations laid in the main lessons.

The third part of the day is devoted to the fine, applied and performing arts, as well as physical education and social community-building activities.
