Desert Sky Community School is a tuition free public charter school inspired by Waldorf education. We strongly encourage all families interested in our school to learn about Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy of child development and the Waldorf teaching methodology. We recommend the following books and websites:
Understanding Waldorf Education, by Jack Petrash
Waldorf Education: A Family Guide, by Pamela Johnson Fenner and Karen Rivers

If you would like to learn more about Desert Sky Community School please come visit us! Tours are scheduled for adults on Thursday mornings. There will be opportunity later for your child to meet the teacher and experience the classroom.
During your visit, you will learn about the curriculum and teaching methods, see the campus, and have the opportunity to ask questions.
Please call the school office at (520) 745-3888 to schedule your visit.
If you would like to enroll your student at Desert Sky, please come for a campus visit! An Enrollment form is available at the tour, or you may print it out here and submit it by mail, email, or fax. Enrollment for August begins in February. Mid-year enrollment may be considered. Your enrollment form is only valid when signed by the parent or guardian.
When your Enrollment form is received, you will be invited to a Registration meeting to review school policies, complete paperwork, and pay a $20 payment toward the annual activity fee of $250. Please bring questions to either your Tour or Registration meeting, or you may email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current Desert Sky families, including siblings of current students, are given priority enrollment in January.
Open Enrollment for the upcoming school year, occurs every February. All registration forms received during open enrollment will be part of the open enrollment lottery.
All enrollment forms received after open enrollment will be placed in the order they were received, and students will be admitted until the spaces are filled. Once spaces are filled, all remaining applicants will be placed on a waiting list by grade level. You will then be contacted when a seat is available.
Families may mail, scan/email, or fax the enrollment form with parent signature.
Our fax number is (520) 745-5110.
