Waldorf School of Orange County (WSOC) invites you to explore the Waldorf curriculum from early childhood through high school. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive education that engages the child cognitively, actively and emotionally. We recognize and welcome the unique gifts brought by each child we serve, encourage independent thinking and imagination, and foster a life-long love of learning.
Based upon the teachings and insights of Rudolf Steiner, our age-appropriate curriculum fully integrates the disciplines of the humanities, science and math, movement, and the arts into a strong academic program. Within our school community and in our classrooms, our goal is to engage the mind, fire the imagination, and strengthen the will as students develop with initiative, creativity, and the skills to enter responsibly into an ever changing local and global community.
Waldorf School of Orange County has been helping families raise well-balanced, multi faceted and accomplished young people since 1988. Waldorf education is the fastest growing, nondenominational independent school system in the world, now with almost 1000 schools worldwide.
Our outstanding and dedicated faculty has led WSOC to become one of the most respected and successful Waldorf schools in North America.
Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
Waldorf School of Orange County is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community.
We, the faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees, recognize that our efficacy in realizing this commitment hinges upon our active intervention. We refuse complicity in the pervasive indignities of systemic inequality.
We patently reject any essentialist understanding of race, gender, or religion that subsumes individual differences hierarchically or evolutionarily in the early lectures of Rudolf Steiner.
As an accredited member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), Waldorf School Orange County stands behind the following AWSNA statement:
“Waldorf education espouses principles of respect for human dignity. Any narratives or indications made by Rudolf Steiner that are in contradiction to these principles are not the basis for Waldorf education and we unequivocally denounce such statements.”
