|First of two Credo open house sessions scheduled Saturday
Credo High School will hold open houses for current eighth grade students and their families on Oct. 13 and Nov. 10, at 1 p.m.
Beginning Oct. 15, current eighth graders are invited to spend a day at Credo, shadowing a current student. Those interested can schedule an appointment by calling 664-0600, extension 0.
Credo is a public, college-prep Waldorf-inspired charter high school. At the open houses, prospective students and families will meet Credo teachers and staff, engage with the school’s community, ask questions, and observe mini-lessons.
Credo merges the power of the charter school movement with the effectiveness of Waldorf teaching, helping students, regardless of financial means, master critical thinking, creative expression, collaborative skills, and personal responsibility in an engaging, rigorous college preparatory environment.
Chip Romer, director of Credo High, explained how Credo is founded to offer a public, Waldorf-inspired high school education to Waldorf graduates and other North Bay students interested in a rigorously academic and artistic program.
“We must prepare our young people to become capable leaders in the world,” Romer said. “All Credo graduates will be qualified to apply to the University of California system, and they will have also learned to think imaginatively, to care about all life, and to act responsibly and with authority in the world.”
Credo enrolls students by lottery. Application materials, enrollment information, and details of the school, its staff, and curriculum, are available at www.credohigh.org.
Current ninth or tenth grade students looking for immediate placement for the 2012-13 school year should contact the Credo office now at 664-0600, extension 0. The school is located at 1290 Southwest Boulevard in Rohnert Park.
