TUITION ASSISTANCE

Kimberton Waldorf School is pleased to assist qualifying families with tuition through its Tuition Assistance Program. 

Tuition assistance is available for new and continuing students in full-day kindergarten through grade 12.

Families must reapply each year. Changes in income, family size, etc. may result in increased or decreased awards.

Guidelines
  • New families are eligible to apply for tuition assistance upon acceptance to the school. Mid-year acceptances will be considered if funds remain.
     
  • Applications from current families for the following school year must be received by mid January so that tuition assistance awards can be offered with the re-enrollment contracts. Late applications will be reviewed after the tuition assistance process for new families has been completed and any remaining funds will then be awarded to qualified late applicants.
     
  • It is not possible for the Tuition Assistance Committee to become involved in any financial arrangements between parents. Non-custodial parents are expected to contribute financial documentation to the Tuition Assistance Committee.
Procedure
  • Complete the online Parent Financial Statement (PFS) appropriate for your family’s circumstances. Self-employed individuals are required to complete the Family Farm & Business Form, which is also available online.
     
  • Submit via mail or  to the Tuition Assistance Committee at Kimberton Waldorf School the following additional documentation:
    • A copy of the current year Federal Tax Return, including all schedules. For self-employed individuals, copies of both business and personal tax returns are required.
    • A written explanation of any special circumstances you want the Tuition Assistance Committee to be aware of.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to call the Business Office at 610.933.3635, ext. 120.
