Apply to Credo

Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in Credo High School

OPEN HOUSES: Our Open House this year was held on Saturday, October 15. Due to our move we are not holding a spring Open House this year. We will hold one in the fall of 2017. Prospective students and families are encouraged to come to these events, which will include presentations from administration and students, mini-lessons by various faculty members and social time.

 

TO SHADOW: Credo welcomes eighth graders or high school students interested in transferring to Credo to come and shadow one of our students for a full day. We schedule shadowing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please contact our Enrollment Coordinator, Jodi Boyle, to schedule a shadow day: enroll@credohigh.org or 707-664-0600 x 104.

 

TO APPLY: Credo assures equal access to enrollment by using a random lottery. Please follow the steps below.

Step 1:  Complete and submit the attached Total Lottery Application, which includes questionnaires and a student essay.

Step 2:  Submit fully completed application documents to enroll@credohigh.org, or mail to: 

Jodi Boyle / Credo High School / 1300 Valley House Drive, Suite 100, Rohnert Park, California 94928 / 707-664-0600  x 104 

Note that none of the information requested in our application package, including essay, questions about Special Education or 504 Plans, will affect a student's status in our enrollment lottery. All applicants who are California residents and age appropriate will be entered into the lottery pool without regard to essay or application questionnaire answers.

Credo is a very rigorous, college preparatory academic environment. Students scoring below 70% in a course may be regarded as failing. Any student with a failing grade must make up the failed course in their own time and at their own expense in order to return the following academic year. Making up two failed courses is extremely difficult, and making up more than two is likely impossible. A successful public Waldorf K-8 educational background is recommended in order for a student to experience optimum success at Credo.
