A challenging high school education
Grounded in the classics, academic courses at Waldorf High School expose students to the great ideas of humankind, the events that shaped civilizations, the beauty of mathematics, the power of the arts, and the phenomena of the natural world. Waldorf graduates benefit from a base of interdisciplinary knowledge from which they may pursue any passion in any direction.
An integrated curriculum
Our integrated curriculum is challenging and rigorous, balancing the arts, sciences and humanities. Our faculty fine-tunes the curriculum so that it has a rhythm and harmony as it builds year by year. Teachers meet weekly so that references and connections can be made between subjects. This integration of courses fosters students' appreciation that true understanding is reached by many roads.
An approach grounded in adolescent development
The curriculum reflects awareness of the developmental journey of adolescents and their quests for identity, independence, and purpose. Each year, our students study themes that resonate with their individual growth; each year's focus building on previous years. With a curriculum designed around students' developing consciousness, we feed and balance their intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual growth.

Education in and through the Arts
Many of our students become accomplished artists and musicians, and many do not. All wake to the interplay of color, shape, sound, texture, perception, and emotion, and how these elements enrich our daily lives. All respect the work of the imagination and the power of creativity.
