About Us

Northern Lights School mission is to          re-imagine education in Thunder Bay.          We offer Community Supported Education – educating your child with an active partnership between teachers and parents.

Our Programs

The Waldorf curriculum stands behind our teachers as they meet each child as an individual.  Waldorf educates the whole child – body, soul and spirit and draws inspiration from nature, the arts, cultural wisdoms and the academic fields.
