School’s American Music Ensemble to give performance
Credo High School will hold open house for current eighth grade students and their families at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the school located at 1290 Southwest Blvd. in Rohnert Park.
Visitors will enjoy a performance by the school’s American Music Ensemble, hear presentations by teachers and students and attend a series of mini-lessons. Current eighth graders are invited to spend a day at Credo, shadowing a current student.

Credo is a public, college-prep, public Waldorf 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.
Chip Romer, director of Credo, explained how Credo was 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. 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.”
Dickens Holiday Faire
Credo also will host its inaugural Dickens Holiday Faire Dec. 13-15, which will feature a daily theatrical presentation of “Scrooge’s Christmas” by Ken Jones, a musical adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. The weekend festivities include a Christmas tree sale and the Credo Holiday Boutique, featuring handcrafted, Waldorf-inspired gift items and home made treats for sale.
The Credo faire begins Dec. 13 at 5 p.m., and there will be a 7 p.m. production of “Scrooge’s Christmas” by the Credo theater department. On Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14 and 15, the fair begins at noon, with a 2 p.m. presentation of “Scrooge’s Christmas” each day. The play is appropriate for children of all ages.
There is a $10 admission for the “Scrooge’s Christmas” performances. The Credo Christmas trees, noble and Grand Firs, are grown by Credo teacher John Hinkle and maintained by Credo students and cost $30 and up. All proceeds from this event will benefit Credo.
