About our school:

Waldorf School of Orange County

Waldorf School of Orange County (WSOC) is a strong stable school with over 300 students. Over the past 20 years, we have evolved from a single kindergarten to a vibrant school with playgroup, 3- and 5-day kindergarten classes and first through eighth grades. We opened our Waldorf high school in the fall of 2007. WSOC is a full member of AWSNA. The operation of WSOC is guided by the College of Teachers which upholds the spiritual and pedagogical ideals of the school. The faculty includes specialty teachers for Japanese, Spanish, eurythmy, handwork, woodwork, art, games, choir and stringed orchestral instruments.


Sunny Southern California Beckons:

Our ten-acre school site is located on the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean adjoining a park and nature preserve area. A mild climate year-round with little rain and sunny skies nearly everyday lets us take advantage of our unique environment. Beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, and a vibrant growing community are just a few of the features that make Orange County one of California's most desirable locations. Costa Mesa is located just one hour south of Los Angeles and ninety minutes north of San Diego.
