Today, more than ever, adolescents need an education that prepares them to think critically, creatively, morally, and without limits. Our high school curriculum promotes the development of individuals who are, out of their own inner strength, able to forge their own destinies and find their rightful places in the world.

The education is holistic

It speaks to the body, heart, and soul as well as the mind. The academically challenging curriculum is balanced by a program rich in music, drama, fine and applied arts, movement and practical skills.

The education is experiential

Experiences awaken the students to become active participants in their education.

The size of the school nurtures the individual

In our small and nurturing school community, we get to know each of our students well. Every student has a faculty advisor who provides academic, social, and personal support through all four years. Our students are accountable and feel their participation and initiative is highly supported by the student body, as well as the faculty.

The education meets the needs of the students

During the four high school years, teenagers are transformed physically, mentally, and emotionally. Their development gives rise to different inner questions. At WSOC, those questions guide the way material is taught through the different stages.

 

In the end, the measure of a school lies in its graduates. The Waldorf record is impressive - a survey by the Research Institute for Waldorf Education shows that 94% of Waldorf graduates attended and completed college or university. They generally score well above the national average on SATs and are enrolled in many of the country's top colleges including Stanford, Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale. Come meet us and find out why.

 

"By the time they reach us at the college and university level, Waldorf students are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. Such students possess the eye of a discoverer and the compassionate heart of a reformer, which, when joined to a task, can change the planet." -- Dr. Arthur Zajonc, Professor of Physics, Amherst College
