The Impact of Your Support

When you donate to the Waldorf School of Philadelphia, your generosity impacts our school at every level. The quality of our programming, the professional development of our teachers, and the overall experience of each of our students is made possible by contributions like yours.

At the Waldorf School of Philadelphia, we take great pride in our faculty. At its core, a Waldorf education enables children to grow up feeling confident in themselves and their space in the world, so they can approach life with enthusiasm and openness, and find beauty everywhere. Our teachers are engaged in bringing up the adults we need in our world, and they bring passion and enthusiasm to campus every day.

With support from our Annual Fund donors we are able to offer all of our faculty the opportunity to attend training and professional development seminars at a range of institutions and in a wide array of subjects. Here, a few of our teachers share insights they gained attending courses:
