Since Fall 2020, the Grade 8 students have been independently researching an interest or passion. Over two evenings this March, their explorations will culminate in presentations they make to our school community: Tuesday, March 2nd and Wednesday, March 3rd!
These projects are a rite of passage and fixture in the grade eight year at Waldorf Academy.
How it works:
- 8 eighth grade students
- 2 evenings of presentations
- 4 presentations per evening
- 30 minutes each
- topics ranging from Social Media, Video Games to the Japanese Domestic Market for car enthusiasts!
- Q/A session for interactive discussion following each talk
*Tuesday Mar 2nd & Wednesday Mar 3rd at 6:30 pm
Attend one, or both, nights and support our Grade 8 students!

Deep Gratitude for our Student Mentors
An essential part of the project process is working with a mentor.
As students enter adolescence, they need to learn from adults who are specialists in their field, and who have mastery over their subject. This inspires students’ developing their capacities to think, reason, and judge – it inspires their connection to, and interest in the world.
The student-mentor relationship can look as different as the topics the students pursue, but the one criterion is that it offers something that the students would not have access to on their own.
We as a community are always so grateful for those who offer their time to mentor a student for their grade 8 project. If you are considering becoming a mentor, please do not hesitate to contact us – we’ll be thrilled to share more information to help with your decision!
