Ashwood Alumni

Ashwood alumni are creative thinkers, confident in their own abilities, possessing a reverence for life, a strong sense of personal responsibility, and the ability to thrive and adapt in a changing world.

An Ashwood education was one of the best gifts my parents could have given me.  A community dedicated to the appreciation of nature, music, arts, rigorous thought, nourishing relationships… an education in what it is to be human.

Caroline Ginsberg

Class of 2000

I thank my Ashwood education for encouraging my open-mind, fearless authenticity, and reverence for earth. These qualities were nurtured in the safety of your classrooms and communities, and they have brought me a deep sense of peace as I navigate life.

Brenda Reddy

Class of 2006

By the time Waldorf students reach us, they are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. They possess the eye of discoverer and the compassionate heart of the reformer, which when joined to a task, can change the planet.

Alumni spotlight: Nadejda Stancioff

Nadejda Stancioff graduated from Ashwood in 2006. She went to college at Mount Holyoke, traveled abroad here and there, and most recently biked across the country with her father just for the fun of it. This past spring she became a paragliding pilot out west and then moved back to Maine and spent the summer building a super small house with her partner. She is currently working for New Hope for Women as the school based advocate at Oceanside High School as well as working on her Masters in Social Work and trying to spend as much time outside as possible. She loves the midcoast community and feels deeply lucky and appreciative of having had the opportunity to attend Ashwood so many years ago.
