This December we'll convene once again from the far corners of the world for the Fourth Annual Alumni Event.
The program is the same: great snacks, great drinks, great company--and it's all free! The event is open to anyone who was enrolled at Summerfield in the Class of 2009 or older (21 and over only). Each alumni may bring one guest. See you there!
To be placed on the Guest List, contact alumni(at)summerfieldwaldorforg.
Life after Summerfield Waldorf School
Waldorf education provides a well-rounded foundation as our students move out and about into the world to attend diverse colleges and universities and to work in many different professions. The Survey of Waldorf Graduates, conducted by David Mitchell and Douglas Gerwin, indicates that Waldorf Education is achieving the following in its graduates:
- Multiple Intelligences and Cross Disciplinary Learners
- Global Consciousness and Sustainability
- Basis for Moral Navigation
- Creative Problem Solving
- High Levels of Social Intelligence
- Environmental Stewardship
- High Levels of Emotional Intelligence
- Thinkers Who Think Outside the Box
According to this recent study of Waldorf graduates:
- 94% attended college or university
- 47% chose humanities or arts as a major
- 42% chose sciences or math as a major
- 89% are highly satisfied in choice of occupation
- 91% are active in life-long education
- 92% placed a high value on critical thinking
- 90% highly values tolerance of other viewpoints
Where Are Waldorf Students Accepted and Where Do They Go?
"The simple answer is, 'everywhere.' They go to schools from Amherst to Yale, from the University of Maine to the University of California at San Diego. They go to local community colleges and to elite Ivy League universities. Some go to design schools, music, visual and performing art schools."
