Teacher Training Schedule Update
"Through study we cannot become teachers. We cannot drill others into being teachers, because each one of us is already a teacher. Every human being is a teacher but he is sleeping and must be awakened, and art is the awakener. Nevertheless he will still be a good teacher because it does not depend on the giving out of knowledge but on activating the individuality of the soul upon the pre-earthly existence. Then it is really the child who educates himself through us. And that is the truth. In reality we do not educate at all. We only disturb the process of education when we intervene too energetically. We only educate when we behave in such a way that through our own behavior the child can educate himself. " - Rudolf Steiner
Summer 2020 Schedule Update
New Cohort Starting June 2020 with Graduation Summer 2022
Continuing and New Teacher Training Classes
In response to the needs of teachers, potential teachers, and school leaders, SCC is pleased to announce revised programs for Summer 2020. We have reshaped our summer offerings and will not be offering our usual cornucopia of public courses. New cohorts in both EC and GS will join our current teacher training groups, with a hybrid of online and in-person (government regulations permitting) programs, with the intention of making the best of both modalities.
June 20 and 27 (9 - 11 am Pacific): EC & GS New Student Orientation - Online sessions
June 29 - July 3 and July 6 - 10 : Online Distance Learning Courses
Rosicrucian Wisdom, an online course with Anouk Tompot and Nancy Pfeiffer 9-11 am, presentation, discussion, and artistic work, with daily homework assignments.

The Cycle of the Year, Festivals, Diversity, and Art.
(In the case that Covid19 precautions prevent our gathering in person, classes will meet online on the same days (content and daily schedules are subject to change).
Specific Grade Level Preparation for GS In-Service Students
In-service grades students will be offered grade-specific preparation support during the months of June and July via Zoom and phone conferencing. These will be individual and small group sessions focusing on essential themes for each grade level. We will engage in a co-creative process with the aim of inspiring creativity and confidence in planning for the year ahead.
Session 1: Discussions regarding child development and essential themes, resources & planning tools for the grade level.
Session 2: Share work, discussion and questions, personal goal setting.
Follow up conversations will be on a case by case basis.
