Lobby of the Center for Education

A center for learning, inspiring, creating

The Center for Education at Wolf Trap houses a wide range of arts and education activities, as well as the administrative offices of the Wolf Trap Foundation.

Visit the Center on any given day and you’re likely to see something different. A group of 3-5 year old children on a
field trip to experience the thrill of live performance. Singers from the renowned Wolf Trap Opera company busy in rehearsal. Teachers attending a professional development workshop, learning how to use the arts to enhance education. Or people of any age, from any walk of life, taking a music class or attending a pre-performance lecture.

When not in use for Wolf Trap Foundation activities, several spaces at the Center for Education are
available to rent.
