Students engage in a comprehensive study of a variety of disciplines, including science, math, humanities, foreign language, music, drama and the arts. While the four years of high school together form an integrated whole, the curriculum of each grade is tailored to address key stages in adolescent and post-adolescent development. The content of the courses offered each year focuses on giving students an increasingly in-depth understanding of the subject at hand and provides them a context to work with the awakening questions of the emerging self.
Summerfield is accredited by both the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The courses offered meet the University of California's admissions requirements. Our students consistently rank among the highest in SAT scores for Sonoma County and many attend the college of their choice. High standards of academics, critical thinking and independent research serve to help students acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in post-secondary education at a variety of levels.
