College Guidance

The counselor works with the junior class to analyze postsecondary goals., and create a personalized standardized testing and college planning timetable. They also begin to identify and research potential colleges. Workshops on resume building and college essay writing are built into the curriculum.

This seminar also includes brief units on social and initimate relationships, as well as the media's influence in the 21st century.

LEADERSHIP SKILLS: RESEARCH/TECHNOLOGY

In this course, students use what they learned in previous grades to develop the research skills needed for papers and presentations they will be expected to tackle in their junior year. We cover a variety of presentation software with a focus on Smart notebook, as students are given the option of utilize the schools’ Smartboard for their class projects. There will be a review of research ethics and helpful tips as well as more in depth experience with Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Publisher. Extension beyond MLA citation into other formats such as Chicago and APA style will also take place in order to prepare them for their college experiences.

College Guidance

"Waldorf education addresses the child as no other education does. Learning, whether in chemistry, mathematics, history or geography is imbued with life and so with job which is the only true base for later study. By the time they reach us at the college level, these students are grounded proudly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. Such students possess the eye of the discoverer, and the compassionate heart of the reformer which, when joined to a task, can change the planet.”

                                                                               --Arthur Zajonc, Ph.D., Physics Professor, Amherst College

 

Our school's approach to the college planning process is highly personalized and student-centered. We believe it is appropriate for each student to make mindful decisions that are informed by accurate self insight and thorough exploration. While we want our students to attend reputable colleges and universities, our ultimate intention is that each student selects a school that is the very best choice based on personal needs. Education at Waldorf is about nurturing the individual. We want that tradition and environment to continue during our graduates’ developmental college years.  The current Waldorf College Profile reflects a comprehensive list of colleges and universities where our students have been accepted over the last several years. It is indeed a very impressive listing of institutions. It is indeed a very impressive listing of institutions, and we are extremely proud of the recognition our faculty, curriculum and student achievement have garnered.
