Admission: High School

The San Francisco Waldorf High School Admission team is excited to present our school as an option for your student and family. Educating and empowering young people is possibly the most important thing we as a community can do. School is not just about academically preparing students for the future. It is also about nurturing and educating young people to ultimately become leaders and participants in our common human experience. At San Francisco Waldorf High School, education is beyond college prep—it is life prep. We strive to support each unique student with their intellectual, social, and emotional development through critical and imaginative thinking, creativity, balance, relationships, compassion, and courage. We are a school that is small by design, where every teacher knows every student and deep lasting friendships are nurtured between students across the grades.
