Welcome to the Application page of the Waldorf High School Teacher Education Program (WHiSTEP):

You can complete the first stage of this process online by filling out the form below and submitting it with an application fee of $75.00.

Support documentation (resume, college transcripts, references, photo, application essay) may be uploaded with this application, or alternatively, you can mail them to:

Douglas Gerwin, Director Center for Anthroposophy,  P.O. Box 545, Wilton, NH 03086

Once we have received all of your support documentation, we will contact you to arrange a personal or telephone interview with the program director, followed by a financial review with the Center’s administrator. 

If accepted into the Waldorf High School Teacher Education Program, you will be notified within two weeks of the interview and asked to  confirm your enrollment along with a registration fee of $850.00. (This fee constitutes a first portion of your first summer’s tuition.)

At that time, you will be asked to call Milan Daler, Administrator of the Center at 603-654-2566, to set up a tuition payment plan as part of a signed contract of enrollment.

Please note: New three-summers cycles of the Waldorf High School Teacher Education Program (WHiSTEP) begin each July. Early application is advised to ensure that your preferred areas of specialization are available to you.
