The mission of Center for Anthroposophy (CfA) is to enkindle a flame in adults
- who resolve to raise today’s children and adolescents through Waldorf education; or
- who engage in the leadership and administration of Waldorf schools; or
- who work pedagogically with the healing arts
so that they can forge new human capacities out of their practice of lifelong learning and research.
What is Center for Anthroposophy?
Arising out of inspirations made available to humanity by Rudolf Steiner, CfA offers low-residency programs in Waldorf elementary and high school teacher education, professional and leadership development, and specialized training in healing education through the arts.
CfA supports schools worldwide, inspiring Waldorf teachers and those who stand with them as administrators, trustees, parents, friends, and healing community activists.
As an anthroposophical institution, CfA actively promotes the ideals of social inclusion, cultural diversity, individual equity, and socio-economic access in its programs, policies, and practices.
Since 1995 the Center has supported schools worldwide by continually preparing and renewing Waldorf teachers and those who stand with them as administrators, trustees, parents, and friends.
