Start the Admissions Process

We are now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 school year. We welcome new applications at any time during the year, but class sizes are limited.  In order to secure available placement, the admissions process should be completed in a timely manner.










How To Apply

Welcome to The Waldorf School of San Diego, and thank you for considering our school.

We look forward to helping you learn more about our curriculum approach and philosophy, as well as the outcomes of a Waldorf Education.

It may be helpful for you to view our Waldorf age-to-grade chart. This is how the majority of our student placements are considered and it’s based on their DOB.

We are committed to making the admissions process smooth for your family. If you find you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly, we are here to help in any way that we can! We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!

Call For Questions

01. Inquire

The first step is to complete the online inquiry form for your student. Once submitted, you will hear from someone within 48 hours.

02. Virtual Tour, Social Media, Waldorf101 

First, take the virtual tour. It really gives you an in-depth view of both our campuses. Then visit our Instagram or Facebook pages for up-to-date photos & videos of our outside classrooms! New footage is added almost daily.  It’s recommended that you make a list of questions while you are reviewing the tour and social media pages. Once you’ve done your research, please RSVP for the next Zoom Waldorf101 Q&A Session.  These are held monthly for all prospective parents and it’s the perfect place to get all your curriculum and other questions answered! These sessions are hosted by our Admissions Director or one of our Waldorf teachers and are designed to help you decide if Waldorf education and WSSD are the right fit for your family. We are excited to share our school with you!

03. Apply

05. Acceptance

Family will receive an acceptance letter and if placement is available, it will come with instructions for completion of the registration and tuition contract online. Payment of the New Student Fee along with the Tuition Deposit at the conclusion of the online registration process will secure your child’s spot in class.
