Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy and the Arts

For those seeking to deepen their understanding of the life of spirit through study, exercises in self-development, and the practice of the arts. Groups meet typically twice a month in clusters around the country and are open to all interested in this work.
The program includes:

  • study, including practical exercises
  • artistic activities that are transformative in nature
  • direct experiences of life in a Waldorf school and other cultural initiatives arising from the work of Rudolf Steiner

High School Teacher Education Program

For those preparing to educate adolescents in the sciences, the humanities, or a full range of the arts. Designed for those already teaching or working full-time, this part-time program involves three “summer intensives” in Wilton, New Hampshire plus independent studies including mentored research and an internship. Specializations are offered in:

  • Biology/Earth Science
  • English/Literature
  • Eurythmy
  • Foreign Languages
  • History/Social Studies
  • Physics/Chemistry
  • Mathematics/Computer Studies

Pedagogical Eurythmy Training

For trained eurythmists readying themselves to teach in a Waldorf high school. At present this program forms part of the High School Teacher Education Program (described above), and includes concentrated sessions of mentoring during the year in Waldorf schools across North America.

Renewal Courses

For those wishing to rejuvenate their Waldorf teaching or to renew their work with anthroposophy. Courses, each running five days, are offered in late June and early July. Themes vary from year to year but always include courses in the arts, the craft of teaching, and the many practical applications of the life and work of Rudolf Steiner.

Building Bridges

A program designed to introduce the foundations of Waldorf education found in Anthroposophy through study, group discussion and the practice of the arts. The content of these courses will supplement foundational course work in preparation for formal Waldorf teacher training at Antioch, as well as content that may lead to advance standing in the Antioch teacher education program, thus possibly reducing the number of summer semesters required in residency in New Hampshire (from three to two summers).
