Visit

Take Time to Understand

Purpose: After application review, the Director of Student Services will contact you to arrange a 1-3 day classroom visit, which allows the teachers to observe your student’s interaction with the class, and helps your student understand a typical day in the life of a Waldorf high school student.

Assessment: We conduct a writing and math assessment for students applying to grades 9 – 12. Students may also meet with additional subject teachers, including Spanish or music.

Interview

Let’s Connect

Schedule: Following application submission, we contact you to schedule an interview. Faculty and staff will then meet to determine if Waldorf education is the best fit for the student.

Structure: We ask students to complete a math and writing assessment. They should bring their portfolio with examples of academic and artistic work.

Portfolio Guidelines: Please photocopy and attractively bind with a title page, and table of contents. Include class title, grade level, teacher’s name and assignment for the following:

  • At least two English assignments
