“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.

The need for imagination, the sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility – these three forces are the very nerve of education.”

-Rudolf Steiner


Located in Mount Vernon, Washington, the Greenwood Tree Educational Cooperative offers child-centered educational experiences grounded in rhythmic, seasonally driven curricula. Our classes range from Early Childhood education through Middle School age homeschool-enrichment programs. We incorporate a hands-on, experiential learning approach that takes into account each child’s developmental process and encourages internally motivated discovery. Our vibrant community events, festivals, and gatherings further enrich the lives of both the children and their families. The programs at Greenwood Tree are continually evolving to better meet student needs and flow directly from the shared vision, collaboration, and commitment of teachers and parents.

Special Announcements:


  • We are glad to announce that we will be holding an In-Person Open House on May 22 from 10am to 12pm.  We will have teachers there representing all of our grades, so regardless of your student’s age, this Open House will be a great place to connect with our Faculty and Community. In order to allow for enough space to feel comfortable exploring the building and speaking with teachers, we are asking that families please sign up ahead of time for a 30 minute slot during which they will plan to attend. If you do not sign up ahead of time, we may not be able to welcome you in without a wait.  SIGN UP NOW to get your slot.

  • Starting April 12, 2021 Greenwood Tree is beginning a NEW 2 Day Preschool option (Monday, Wednesday) for ages 3 and 4.   Please contact Eileen@Greenwoodtreecoop.org to find out more and join our bright school this Spring!
