For the rest of the program, we plan to offer workshops similar to the ones being offered this year, including further supplementary seminars for high school teachers and school administrators. Exact dates for the fall and winter 2022-23 series will be made available closer to the start date of April 3. Please look over the program below to see if this exciting CfA offering might meet your needs. In the past, we have had strong demand from parents, administrators, and new educators including teachers working in high schools. 

For those preparing to undertake Waldorf teacher training, this program fulfills prerequisite foundational studies.

When registering for the Explorations program you are committing to the entire course of study and even though the total tuition of $720 is collected in more manageable monthly installments, it is not to be understood as paying for a month’s worth of classes. Should you miss a class or two, the tuition will still be charged.
 

To register, click here and pay your fully refundable* deposit of $72 to hold a place in the next cohort.*Your deposit is fully refundable ONLY if you cancel your registration via email by January 15, 2022. No refunds available after that date.

Please note, we have had long waiting lists for some of our programs, so please register early!

In 2020 we transformed our popular Explorations program from an in-person offering that took place in local school communities to a fully online program. Since then, interested people from around the world have been able to take part in this foundational program, which is intended primarily for parents, administrators, and new teachers in public and independent Waldorf schools, as well as those teaching children at home. 

Each class will begin with 30 minutes of artistic work (speech/storytelling, movement for personal hygiene, music, and pastel drawing), followed by contemplative studies on current themes using anthroposophy as a method of inquiry. We will look at a holistic view of the human being, self-development, plus current social and pedagogical needs.

 

Further steps after Explorations:
After completing the Explorations Program, motivated participants may enroll in a Building Bridges Program designed as the first step in Waldorf Teacher Education. If a school community has more than 15 interested in Building Bridges for the following school year (2022-23) we may be able to offer that program face to face at your school.
