Supporting each student’s journey
We believe that a complete education (academic, aesthetic, artisan, altruistic, and active wilderness), is only part of each student’s journey—just as important is the knowledge that each child has an extensive and committed community supporting them. We believe that a complete education (academic, aesthetic, artisan, altruistic, and active wilderness), is only part of each student’s journey—just as important is the knowledge that each child has an extensive and committed community supporting them.
To that point, we offer many ways for parents, alumni, and friends to be part of our community.
Our Alumni, GlenX, are our greatest advertisement. They are men and women who have shared in the Glenaeon spirit and who every day, through their words and deeds, contribute to a better world by leading meaningful lives.
Our hope is that every Glenaeon student, upon leaving the school, will take the knowledge and experience they have gained and draw on these resources to lead lives of character and contribution.
HOW OUR ALUMNI CONTRIBUTE
Many alumni are motivated to contribute to the growth of our school. These contributions take many forms, from philanthropic contributions to volunteering time, energy and expertise, as well as the informal gatherings with classmates and mentoring current students.

Helping make Glenaeon a better place
CORE PARENTS AND INTEREST GROUPS
Glenaeon is supported by a number of core parent and interest groups who share their energy, time and knowledge to support the school and help make it a better place. These include Glenaeon Parents Association, Parent Education, Parent Craft, and our Grass Roots Eco Store.
The Glenaeon community has long benefited from a tradition of giving with over 90% of the school current facilities enjoyed by our students financed through extensive fundraising by parents, teachers and alumni. The Glenaeon community is grateful for all contributions that allow our school to be what it is today.
THE GLENAEON FOUNDATION
The Glenaeon Foundation was established in 2012 to assist the school in further developing its educational facilities and ensure we provide an outstanding Rudolf Steiner Education to all of our students.
While tuition fees and Government grants support the school’s daily operations, the longer term needs of the school require a significant fundraising program. Your charitable tax deductible gifts enable the school to thrive and ensure the long term future of the school.
Glenaeon continues to grow as an established school with a reputation for providing students with a broad and balanced education that is the foundation for a successful and fulfilling life.
We would like to thank those who have contributed to our fundraising to-date. But our work has only just begun. Every act of generosity helps us to continue to provide our children with an environment in which they can flourish.
