Survey of Waldorf Graduates

Recently, the Research Institute for Waldorf Education conducted an extensive survey of graduates from Waldorf high schools throughout North America and found the following:

  • 94% attended college or university

  • 42% chose sciences or math as a major

  • 47% chose humanities or arts as a major

  • 89% are highly satisfied in their choice of occupation

  • 91% are active in lifelong education

  • 92% placed a high value on critical thinking

  • 90% highly value tolerance of other viewpoints

Three key findings about Waldorf graduates were revealed through this survey:

  1. Waldorf graduates think for themselves and value the opportunity to translate their new ideas into practice. They both value and practice lifelong learning and have a highly developed sense for aesthetics.

  2. Waldorf graduates value lasting human relationships – and they seek out opportunities to be of help to other people.

  3. Waldorf graduates are guided by an inner moral compass that helps them navigate the trials and temptations of professional and private life. They carry highly developed ethical principles into their chosen professions.
