Credo High School

Credo High School is a tuition-free, college-prep public charter school in Rohnert Park, California, inspired by Waldorf education and serving students in ninth through twelfth grades. The school opened with an initial ninth grade on August 22, 2011, and added a grade each year until it is now enrolled through twelfth grade in the 2014-2015 school year.

As an alternative public school of the Cotati Rohnert Park Unified School District, Credo offers a rigorous academic curriculum that exceeds University of California ("a-g") admission requirements and includes a full complement of enrichment subjects, including Spanish, visual arts (painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture), practical arts (media arts, blacksmithing, woodworking), theater, music (Choir, American Music, Orchestra and World Percussions), movement, dance and physical education, biodynamic gardening and farming and a social-emotional learning curriculum.

Credo is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and has an Academic Performance Index of 853.

The Challenge

Credo High needed a website to reflect the promise of a courageous new educational venture in a time of tough economic constants. To achieve these goals CommunityGrove coordinated with motivated parent volunteers to build an online presence capable of highlighting the school's unique offerings.

The Solution

The Credo High School website explored the limits of what can be accomplished for a new, innovative high school in a time of shrinking educational budgets.

The site uses Drupal for content management and CiviCRM for community relationship management.
