2023-24 Tuition & Fees


Choosing a school for your child is a significant decision.  We believe a Waldorf education is one of the most important investments you can make in your child’s formative years. Our tuition is strategically structured to attract and retain a diverse population so that our community can be as enriching as the education we provide.  Payment plans and tuition assistance are available to support your enrollment process.

Please note tuition increases annually.

Tuition Assistance

Our Financial Aid program is available to families who demonstrate both the need for aid and a commitment to Waldorf education here at SWS. We recognize that life circumstances and discretionary financial choices vary for every family. Each application is carefully considered. Aid is awarded according to the need exhibited and to the extent funds are available.

This program is managed by the Finance Aid Committee, a committee of the Board of Trustees. The funds for our program come from tuition revenue, designated gifts, and scholarship funds we receive through the Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Applicants meeting the EITC program criteria will be awarded from those proceeds.

Interviews with all new applicants will be arranged upon receipt of all documentation. Interviews may also be arranged with a returning family, at the discretion of the Committee or the request of the family.
