High School

Pasadena Waldorf offers an enhanced liberal arts college preparatory high school curriculum that fully meets—and in many areas exceeds—the University of California “a-g” requirements. With a proven curriculum and over 90 years of experience at hundreds of high schools nationally and internationally, the Waldorf approach to high school consistently develops students into solidly grounded creative thinkers, adept problem solvers, and active socially-conscious citizens.

Dedicated to demonstrating that academically rigorous does not have to mean desk-bound, PWS high school students move and explore as they master the traditional academic subjects, as well as immerse themselves in a wide range of fine, practical, and performing arts. Physical education and outdoor education round out the curriculum. No other school requires all students to challenge themselves in as diverse a range of skills as does Pasadena Waldorf.

We cannot predict what challenges the future will hold for our students, but we can foresee that they will need to be able to think creatively and independently, to work well with others, have sound moral judgments as well as a genuine and confident sense of self in relation to their community and their world.

The Waldorf high school curriculum beautifully meets the needs of the adolescent through a diverse program of study and experiences that are not only academic, artistic, practical, and social, but also relevant to humanity and the world in which we live.

Waldorf students graduate with social consciousness, strong academic skills, and a vibrant individuality that allows them to impart purpose and direction to their lives.
