Kimberton Waldorf School understands and honors the commitment of families to provide a Waldorf education for their children. We are proud to partner with families through our tuition assistance program to help make an independent Waldorf school education possible.
Tuition assistance is available for students in 4-5 full-day Rosebud and Kindergarten, and in grades 1 through 12. Families must reapply each year.
New families are eligible to apply for tuition assistance as soon as they apply for admission to the school (application is available November 1 of the preceding academic year), however decisions will not be made until the student completes the process and is accepted. Students interested in enrolling after the start of the school year will be considered if funds remain.
Applications from current families for the following school year must be received by January 7th 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; any remaining funds will then be awarded to qualified late applicants.
