KWS Admissions Process
Thank you for your interest in Kimberton Waldorf School
We have a rolling admissions policy and accept students throughout the year when space is available. We are currently accepting applications. If a class is full, we continue to accept students into a wait-pool. Follow the steps below to learn more about becoming part of the Kimberton Waldorf School family!
1. Submit an Inquiry
The first step of the admissions process is to provide us with some basic details about your family. Email us here for admission forms. You will receive an information packet in the mail.
2. Visit the School
Choosing a school is one of the most significant decisions you will make for your child and your family. To fully appreciate all that we have to offer to our students, we request that parents/guardians visit the school as an early part of the application process.
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of admission events, and we invite you and your family to attend as many of these as you would like during your journey. You are welcome to schedule an admissions tour by contacting email@example.com or 610.933.3635, ext. 108.

4. Student Visit
When the Admissions Office has received the application and support documentation, the parents/guardians will be contacted to arrange for the student to visit the school. Whenever possible, the student should visit while school is in session.
The focus of this time is to ensure that the “fit” between your child and our school will be an enriching and fruitful one. For grades 1 through 12, a three-day visit is required, in order to allow thorough impressions to be formed both by the student and by the teachers. Student visitors should arrive at the school no later than 7:50 AM. (In the high school, testing for placement will be done during the visit.)
5. Admissions Decision
The Admissions Office will contact you shortly after the student visit to let you know whether your child has been accepted. We will send out an acceptance packet with an enrollment contract. Enrollment is finalized once we have received the completed enrollment forms and the enrollment deposit.
Tuition Assistance (Financial Aid)
Tuition assistance is determined after the child has been accepted for enrollment, and all other forms and records are complete. If you are interested in applying for need-based tuition assistance, please click here for more information.
Policy on Non-Discrimination
Kimberton Waldorf School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ethnic background, or national origin in admission of students, in financial aid grants, or in any program offered.
