Gradalis provides Nationally Accredited Professional Development and Training for teachers in Schools Inspired by Waldorf Principles. All courses and programs are created and given by educators with decades of experience in both class teaching and school leadership roles within both independent and public schools inspired by these principles. Unique to Gradalis is its design to support in-service, full time class teachers throughout the 26-months of Gradalis Teacher Training. Anthroposophically-based courses provide a solid foundation in classroom practice and the philosophy that is the basis of education inspired by Waldorf principles. Grade Level Instructors prepare teachers for upcoming main lesson blocks over two school years and three summer sessions of the training, while experienced field mentors visit school campuses and classrooms to provide mentor support to candidate-teachers.

Gradalis Teacher Training for Early Childhood and Grades 1-8 Teachers is taught over 26 months, in seven semesters.

8 Courses provide anthroposophical foundations, rich artistic training in visual & temporal arts, inner development, insights for child observation, and working with special needs. Plus, field mentoring, curriculum and school culture.


  • 3 three-week Summer Intensives
  • 4 Practicum Weekends
  • On-line Interactive Distance Learning (7.9% of program) to support the working teacher with monthly pedagogical and main lesson support through two school years.
“Having earned my Gradalis Teaching Certification, I feel confident providing developmentally appropriate curriculum within my classroom and providing leadership to my school. I know that I can go anywhere in the world and be welcomed within the Waldorf movement.”
