Tuition and Assistance
Choosing an educational path for your child is a big and exciting decision. Our students love school, our families are committed to Waldorf education, and our graduates are determined to make an impact on the world.
Choosing an independent school is also a considerable investment in your child’s future – an investment for which we offer financial support. We award grants of all sizes to more than 40 percent of our families, including two full scholarships each year to exceptional high school students whose backgrounds expand socioeconomic and ethnic diversity of our student population. Be in touch anytime.
Grants to families with students in Kindergarten - 12th grade. An annual application is required to take into account changing financial circumstances. The school is committed to maintaining its financial support year-to-year as long as need is demonstrated. Admission decisions are made without regard to the financial circumstances of a candidate’s family.
Grants promote understanding, equity, awareness, and celebration of the diversity in our community.
Grants range in size from $1,000 to $5,000 to families from underrepresented communities without regard to financial need. Grant recipients who demonstrate financial need are also eligible for an ATP grant, which requires an SSS application.

ATP grants are based on financial need and subject to the constraints of the resources available. Financial need is determined according to the guidelines and formula established by the School and Students Services for Financial Aid (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). We use SSS data as a guide in determining the amount of individual grants.
Notification of an award or denial of a grant is mailed to parents of new applicants with the admission decision letter in March. Returning families receive award notification in February. Families receiving tuition grants are required to pay a non-refundable deposit equal to approximately 10% of net tuition.
