Administrator Training

This low-residency program is designed to support independent and public Waldorf school administrators, staff, trustees, and pedagogical leaders through professional development and training that builds skills, capacities, and understanding of their vital roles in Waldorf schools. The program includes workshops, guided exercises, case studies, mentoring, and presentations in areas such as group dynamics, role clarity, communication, conflict resolution, navigating change efforts, strategic vs tactical decision making, community development, and collaborative leadership among other topics brought by our stellar guest presenters.


Explorations takes up burning current topics along with contemplative studies and the practice of the arts through anthroposophy as a method of inquiry. This online course is offered as a supplementary seminar designed to support and inspire both independent and public Waldorf school administrators and pedagogical leaders. Exploration classes meet twice monthly during the school year beginning in March 2022. For more information, please visit our website. centerforanthroposophy.org
