The Sacramento Waldorf School is a private Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade school that has been educating children in the greater Sacramento area since 1959.
Our mission is to prepare young people to fulfill their highest potential.
With an enrollment of more than 400 students, we are among the largest Waldorf schools in North America.
Our beautiful 22-acre campus overlooks the American River and includes a small farm, athletic fields, a gymnasium/performance hall, playgrounds, and classrooms.Our program is developmental in approach, with a full integration of the arts in all subjects.
All students benefit from individual attention from our dedicated, professional faculty and support staff.
Our High School program is academically challenging: better than 90 percent of our graduates attend college.
In addition to the regular school program, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sports, drama, music, and debate.The Sacramento Waldorf School is so much more than academic instruction, however.
It is a community of active and engaged students, faculty, staff, and parents, each participating in a host of activities and endeavors that build a cooperative spirit - a village of sorts - that nurtures our children and families.

Hi, I am a Malaysian, and will be working in California in middle of this year. I would like to send my son to study in California for year 12. We would like to know based on the past years, how many students have been successfully enrolled into UC ? Thanks.
