Waldorf students are well-rounded, well-spoken, and insightful citizens of the world. They engage in volunteerism,
out-of-the-box thinking, and programs that allow them to experience real life in a hands-on way.
Some of these types of programs include:
Plays and Theatre Arts
Service Learning Projects
Week Long Curriculum Based Field Trips
Examples of our students' extraordinary work are below!
The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs hosts an internship program each year for the Junior Class. The students have an opportunity to explore a field of their choosing for one to two weeks in February for an on-the-job experience. Prior to February, the students learn real world skills through classes in resume building, public speaking, and interviewing.
Through this program, our students have both traveled the globe and worked locally, partnering with opportunities from politics in Senator Chuck Schumer's office to astrophysics with Neil Degrasse Tyson. They have worked at nature centers, childcare facilities, art therapy offices, and airline engineering firms. With each internship, the students grow their understanding of the world and develop a confidence that they will carry with them beyond our high school doors.
