We are a leading network of Waldorf inspired public charter schools
Welcome to the Golden Valley Charter Schools community, sharing a Public Waldorf Education since 1999 in Sacramento County. Public charter education is free and serves all students who apply through an open lottery. While our programs are popular, we do have openings. Please explore our website, sign up for a parent information meeting, and inquire about Golden Valley Charter Schools for your child.

Golden Valley Charter Schools’ new Art of Teaching program is focused on putting the theory behind Waldorf Education into practice. Our courses include focus on forming classes, classroom management, developing the social and emotional needs of students, and working with parents. Seasoned professionals from the greater Sacramento region have collaborated to bring you their wealth of experience in the arts and sciences so you can be successful in any public or independent school environment. With a sense of wonder and purpose, come join us this June to launch your summer of preparation while we dance, sing, move, experiment, debate, and laugh.
