A Supportive Learning Community Centered on Social Justice
Each cohort of students in the Waldorf Programs at Antioch New England comes together as a tight-knit community of adult learners.

Education That Is Future-Proof
As technology and job skills shift year by year, one goal remains the same: to develop in our students the capacities of wonder, curiosity, and the ability to solve problems. These are the only skills we can be sure will prepare children for a future that we cannot yet see.
Antioch students experience diverse perspectives, gather knowledge and learn the needed skills to achieve their professional goals, take action that advances justice and lead to positive change.
