    College Acceptances & Matriculations

    The Rudolf Steiner School is proud to announce that the Class of 2016 had an extraordinary college acceptance season this year. The focus of our college guidance program is to guide and support students in finding colleges and universities that are the right fit for each student.

    The Class of 2016 is truly the product of the rich, liberal arts curriculum that is the core of Waldorf pedagogy, and we are particularly pleased with the number of students who will consider college coursework in business, math and science at top universities, including Duke, Stanford, Brown, Williams and Vassar.

    Two students received full four-year scholarships for college tuition, room, board and other fees. Many students will also focus their studies at top universities for ecology, technology, art and design at top colleges and universities.

    To learn more about the Steiner High School and college admissions program, please join us for coffee & conversation with several recent graduates on Wednesday, June 8 from 8:15-9:15 AM (15 East 79th Street). Learn about how the Steiner School shaped these young adults and prepared them for life after Steiner.

    Below is a creative painting of the college/university acceptances and matriculations (below) as designed by the Senior Economic Main Lesson.

    Nimble Minds

    There is a place where science, music and math are intertwined. Where nimble fingers lead to nimble minds. And where our Waldorf curriculum integrates the arts and academics for deeper understanding of both. The result? Students that are critical thinkers. And a curriculum that evolves along with them.
