Prairie Hill was founded in 1986 through love, hard work, ingenuity, faith and commitment. Our school offers children an education unique in its understanding of child development and its integration of the arts, music, language, movement, and science.
Tuition covers only 71% of the cost of educating each child. Your gift directly supports the education the children receive at Prairie Hill and helps to make Waldorf accessible to all children and families who value it regardless of income.
We ask for your financial assistance to support the school in fulfilling its mission: to awaken the capacity for dynamic thinking, creativity and compassion, inspiring children to contribute their unique gifts to the world.
Every gift is tax-deductible.

The Annual Appeal is a year long campaign that raises funds to cover the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost of educating each child. Prairie Hill asks for 100% parent participation in the Annual Appeal, which is important when seeking grants and outside funding.
Each November, the school is transformed with a bounty of music, arts and crafts, and food into a Medieval Village. All Prairie Hill families participate in the Faire by making and donating crafts and baked goods as well as volunteering their time for staffing the Faire. This is a celebration eagerly anticipated each year by Prairie Hill students, families and the outer community.
Donated goods and services are auctioned off to the highest bidder in both silent and live auction. The Prairie Hill community and their guests enjoy food, entertainment, games, camaraderie, laughter, and friendly competition at this themed event.
Art and craft materials, books, natural health and body care products, as well as many wonderful toys are available at our School Store. Purchasing these delightful items for family and friends can help the school reach its financial goals. For more School Store information, click here.
