College Acceptances and Merit Scholarships

College Acceptances

Starting with the pioneering class of 2011, five classes and a total of 44 students have graduated from the Waldorf School of Orange County. They have garnered tremendous success in gaining admission to fine colleges and universities, including a substantial number of those deemed either "highly selective" or "selective". The 87 colleges and universities listed below represent their cumulative acceptances. Please note many of these colleges and universities granted admission to multiple students over the years, but the school is only listed once. It would not be unusual for a single WSOC graduate to have earned acceptances to as many as five, seven, or even ten or more colleges, and then be in the position to select the best fit for their next educational endeavor.
