Clubs & Activities

Clubs are based on student interest and therefore may vary from year to year. A group of students may form a new club by inviting a faculty member to sponsor it. The following clubs are currently or recently active: 

  • Art Club 
  • GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) 
  • Dungeons & Dragons Club 
  • Investing Club 
  • Literary Journal 
  • Robotics Club 
  • Speech & Debate (National Forensics League) 
  • Youth Court 
  • W.A.V.E.S. (Waste and Vice Elimination Squad) 

Student Council 

The Student Council plans and organizes the annual holiday food drive, Prom, dances, and other social events throughout the year, as well as advocating with the faculty on behalf of the student body in policy and decision-making processes. Each class elects representatives to this body of student government, and the Student Council itself elects presidents from the senior class. Weekly Student Council meetings are open and all students are welcome to participate. 

Yearbook 

The Sacramento Waldorf School yearbook is a product of high school student editors and photographers. The yearbook is developed by the senior class as part of their arts track classes. 

Class Trips 

Students take several class trips to support the curriculum of their particular grade level. These typically include trips to San Francisco museums, writing in the Marin Headlands, theater performances, and architectural points of interest. Classes may also take community-building trips such as ropes courses, camping trips, community service projects, and retreats. The Senior class closes its high school experience with a longer class trip. 

Summer Enrichment Programs 

Through our Student Services office, students can be referred to summer jobs, programs on summer campuses (e.g. Introduction to Engineering at Notre Dame, National Youth Leadership Conference on Medicine, Global Youth Leadership Conference on Law and Diplomacy, photography classes at a local community college, Smith Summer Science and Engineering), community service and travel opportunities in the US and abroad, and volunteer opportunities in local school districts. 

Senior Internships 

Each senior completes a week-long internship in an area of their choice, typically shadowing a professional or professionals in a field of the student’s particular interest. Internship Week culminates in a presentation of the seniors’ experiences to their fellow high school students. Past internships have included shadowing attorneys, physicians, stockbrokers, and engineers, assisting in a veterinary clinic, beta-testing bamboo bicycles for a start-up firm, storyboarding and film editing, costume design, and many other enriching experiences.
