Adaptability Quotient: Educating for an Uncertain Future

Social-Emotional Learning at the Vancouver Waldorf School. Children working together to build a garden box.

With increasingly rapid changes in technology and the nature of work, employers are interested not just in intelligence and social skills, but in an employee’s adaptability quotient–their ability to adapt to new challenges with flexibility, curiosity, problem-solving, courage, and resilience. That’s why in Waldorf education we deepen rigorous academics through integrating art, outdoor education, music, theatre, practical work, movement and hands-on-learning. The depth and breadth of our curriculum challenges our students and develops crucial capacities that help them adapt and thrive throughout their lives.

We are currently accepting applications. We have a rolling admissions policy and accept students throughout the year when space is available. Join an information session or meet individually with our Admissions Coordinator to learn more about the Vancouver Waldorf School.
