Austin as a Place to Work and Live

Our beautiful 19-acre campus is situated in the hills outside the Austin city limits. It consists of three kindergartens, eight grade school classrooms, a library, a handwork room, a seven-classroom high school including state-of-the-art science and computer labs, a gymnasium, a eurythmy hall, two art studios, a performing art center with a 350 seat auditorium and two rehearsal rooms, a school store, gardens and three playgrounds.

Austin is a family-oriented city located in the heart of the Hill Country in central Texas. Many of our teachers own homes near the campus. It is a region of rich natural beauty, surrounded by cedar and live-oak trees and filled with creeks, rivers, and a chain of highland lakes. Austin is the state capital and home of the University of Texas, which offers a myriad of cultural and recreational events. Although we serve the Austin community, our location on the edge of town makes it possible to live in a country setting.

The Novalis Branch of the Anthroposophical Society of Texas sponsors study groups, festivals and conferences. We are also fortunate to have a professional Eurythmy ensemble in Austin.

If you are interested in joining a warm, hospitable and growing community such as ours, please submit your cover letter, resume, contact information for a minimum of three professional references and a completed employment application. The Austin Waldorf School is a non-profit organization that welcomes applicants of any religion, race, color, sexual orientation, gender preference, national or ethnic origin.

If you have lived in Texas for all of the past 5 years, please complete the in-state background check. If you have NOT lived in Texas for any amount of time in the past 5 years, please complete the out-of-state background check.
