Tours

With the exception of our Parent-Child tours, we find that limiting the tours to adults only allows parents to concentrate fully on the information provided. Prospective students will have an opportunity to visit the school during the admissions process.

Parents are escorted to the areas of the school that are of most interest to them — early childhood, lower school, or high school and will observe various indoor and outdoor class activities and lessons.

Parent-Child

By-appointment parent-child tours are for infants and toddlers accompanied by their parent or guardian. The tour includes the indoor classroom and outdoor campus areas where parent-child activities take place, including the farm.

For parent-child tour dates and information, email parent-child@sacwaldorf.org or call us at 916-860-2512.

Kindergarten

High School Shadow Days

Shadow days on are an opportunity for your student to experience a day in the life of a Sacramento Waldorf high school student. Your student will be paired up with a high school student, usually a sophomore, and attend an entire day of classes beginning with main lesson and including each of their daily track classes. Lunch will be provided.

Meet at the high school office at 8:20 AM to be welcomed and paired with your host student. We will do our best to pair your student with someone who shares similar interests and who has a class schedule that they will find interesting. Pickup is 3:10 PM in front of the high school office.

Shadow Days require an appointment. To attend a shadow day or ask questions, please contact Cindi Bradshaw, Director of Admissions, cbradshaw@sacwaldorf.org or 916-860-2525.
