How to visit The Waldorf School of San Diego


This is Julie Joinson, Director of Admissions and I want to thank you for visiting our website with an interest in enrolling here at WSSD.  I would love to hear more about your child and your family so please submit an Inquiry Form so that we can begin our conversation.  Rest assured that during these difficult times we are here to help.  We can discuss some options for exploring our school and decide together how to best assist your family from here.  



A comprehensive tour through Nursery, Kindergarten, Elementary Grades 1-8, and High School. It is recommended to attend all tour segments so that you can see how Waldorf education builds through the years, fully supporting the developing child. * Taking a tour is part of our enrollment process. 


We will begin this adult-only tour at our Altadena Campus at 7:45am with registration and a delicious breakfast, and conclude the tour at our Colina Campus at 12 noon.

We offer informal tours during Summer Break (mid June-early September) as preliminary peek into the Waldorf experience for parents who are unable to join the monthly tour at this time. 


We encourage parents to attend the full tour at a later date.

Shadow Days


Prospective students are encouraged to shadow a WSSD student for one or more days as part of our enrollment process. Visiting students are matched with one of our Student Ambassadors, who guide them through a day in the life of a WSSD student – a chance to explore our curriculum and school culture from within.

High School Open House 



We host an annual Open House in early Fall and early Spring.  Come and receive a warm welcome from our students, meet our dedicated faculty, experience in-class demonstrations, see displays of student academic and creative work, and much more.
