About Credo High School
CREDO HIGH SCHOOL IS A PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL that calls on the proven principles of Waldorf education to deliver a college-prep program that advances critical thinking, creativity, responsibility and initiative in public school students. Founded in 2011 to complete the K-8 education offered by our region’s six exemplary Waldorf charter schools, Credo is raising the bar for public high schools in Sonoma County—and establishing a replicable new model for public high schools nationwide.
We address our students as leaders of the future and help them to develop the capacities, compassion and values to address tomorrow’s challenges. Credo is a public high school that gives more, that asks for more, and that prepares its students to achieve more.
Our rigorously academic Waldorf curriculum exceeds University of California ("a-g") admission requirements and includes a wide range of specialty subjects, including world languages, visual and practical arts, theater, music, social-emotional learning, movement, dance, physical education and biodynamic farming.
We currently have a substantial garden and envision growing into a farm campus with a significant sustainable agriculture component where students learn science, respect for the earth and practical skills particularly relevant in agricultural Sonoma County. Sports, clubs and extracurricular programs are a part of student life.
Our concerts scheduled for Thursday, December 11 and Monday, December 15 are both postponed due to weather and school closing on December 11. New dates:
World Percussion concert is rescheduled for Monday, December 15 at 7 PM in the gym.
American Music concert is rescheduled for Thursday, January 15 at 7 PM in the Assembly Room.
Poetry Slam Postponed to Jan 9
Created in 2012 and run by Credo seniors, Club Credo presents a variety of entertaining shows throughout the school year. Shows are booked, marketed and produced by students, who also serve non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. Teens in grades eight through twelve are welcome as guests, if accompanied by adults. Admission is $10.
January 9: Student Poetry Slam at 7 PM. This culmination of the tenth grade Poetics block is a popular annual event, with each tenth grade student performing an original poem. Moving, humorous and powerful.
April 24: Renowned Singer Songwriter David Lunning
