Why the Waldorf High School

The Pasadena Waldorf high school offers a college- and life-preparatory education that places the human being at the center of the learning experience. Dedicated to the understanding that a rigorous and challenging education does not have to be test-driven, the Waldorf high school provides students the opportunity to explore and master a wide range of subjects in a way that challenges thinking, enlivens feelings, and imparts purpose to life.

Waldorf high school students develop creative and independent thinking, genuine self-confidence, and the ability to work well with others. Waldorf graduates understand how to meet challenges creatively and proactively pursue goals, to act out of sound ethical judgments, and to cherish an abiding interest in learning, their community, and the world. A Waldorf high school education develops the creative capacities needed for success in college, relationships, work, and life.

The Pasadena Waldorf School’s high school welcomes students of all religions, races, colors, national or ethnic origins, disabilities, and gender orientations.

Pasadena Waldorf School is accredited by WASC and AWSNA. The high school’s core curriculum has been approved by the University of California and meets or exceeds its “a-g” entrance requirements.
