Academic Excellence without Stress

Maharishi School is a private day and boarding school in Fairfield, Iowa.  One of the top boarding schools in the Midwest, Maharishi School offers top-notch academics, a diverse and inclusive student body, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and a holistic-health curriculum that includes yoga, meditation, and organic food.At Maharishi School, we offer an academically supportive environment that is healthy, safe, engaging, and challenging. Your child will learn and progress with the help of a holistic-health curriculum that helps alleviate the stress and pressure that is currently prevalent at all levels of modern education. This is accomplished primarily through your child's daily practice of Transcendental Meditation®, which enlivens the creative potential of the brain, and gives deep rest through just a few minutes practice, twice a day. Expanded awareness and a healthy, rested body are the basis for successful learning, skill in action, and ideal citizenship. The Consciousness-Based education offered here at Maharishi School creates a firm foundation for both personal and professional success in life.

Your child will also learn to integrate the Science of Creative Intelligence into all subject areas. Through this study, your child will begin to discover an infinite web of connections between all areas of study and his/her own experience.

Our Curriculum:


  • identifies essential concepts and skills for kindergarten through 12th grade in literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and 21st-century skills.
  • enhances your child's engagement by emphasizing interesting, robust, and relevant learning experiences.
  • takes learning to a deeper level by moving your child beyond superficial knowledge to deep conceptual and procedural knowledge.
  • provides direction for our teachers regarding effective instruction and assessment.

Our teachers, school curriculum, and the peaceful, harmonious school climate will support your child regardless of learning style, ability, background, or gender. By offering challenging and meaningful content, our faculty takes responsibility for helping your child grow into a well-rounded, confident, and respectful adult. Your child will graduate from Maharishi School with the 21st-century skills necessary for a productive and satisfying life in a global knowledge-based environment.
