Accreditation News! 

The Waldorf School of Orange County is now officially accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as well as the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA).


The visiting team was very impressed with our dedicated faculty and staff, our curriculum, our wonderful students and our amazingly supportive community. In fact, one of the members said that our self-study was one of the best he has seen in his experience at over 50 schools. Special kudos to our Accreditation Team: Eden Boric, Miriam McKenna, Robin Theiss and Gina Illes.


Before the end of the school year we will be told the term length of our accreditation and we will share this with you as soon as we have it.


We thank the whole community for all the work that went into this successful accreditation!


You are most warmly invited to come and join us for
