About Credo High School
CREDO HIGH SCHOOL IS A PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL that calls on the proven principles of Waldorf education to deliver a college-prep program that advances critical thinking, creativity, responsibility and initiative in public school students. Founded in 2011 to complete the K-8 education offered by our region’s six exemplary Waldorf charter schools, Credo is raising the bar for public high schools in Sonoma County—and establishing a replicable new model for public high schools nationwide.
We address our students as leaders of the future and help them to develop the capacities, compassion and values to address tomorrow’s challenges. Credo is a public high school that gives more, that asks for more, and that prepares its students to achieve more.
Our rigorously academic Waldorf curriculum exceeds University of California ("a-g") admission requirements and includes a wide range of specialty subjects, including world languages, visual and practical arts, theater, music, social-emotional learning, movement, dance, physical education and biodynamic farming.
We currently have a substantial garden and envision growing into a farm campus with a significant sustainable agriculture component where students learn science, respect for the earth and practical skills particularly relevant in agricultural Sonoma County. Sports, clubs and extracurricular programs are a part of student life.
Open House October 17, 1:00 PM!
Credo in Action
Since November 2010, Angela Malson, her husband and their four children have been traveling in a bus fueled by waste vegetable oil. Starting in Florida, they have journeyed from coast to coast as they learn and live on the road as a family. Their “Eco Womb Tour Bus” spreads the message of simple and sustainable living, alternative fuels, renewable energy, natural parenting, living from the heart, healthy living and organic foods. They engage, educate, connect, and co-create conscious change across the country as they travel from coast to coast. Fresh from the Heirloom Festival where they were discovered by Credo gardener Susie Butler, the Malson family visited Credo on September 11 to see our school and share their message.
