Richmond Waldorf School is committed to supporting interested families in affording a private Waldorf education. We have a comprehensive financial aid program and welcome students of all races, ethnicities, cultural and religious heritages, socio-economic backgrounds, geographic origins, gender identities, sexual orientations, and family structures.
We understand that even with the greatest commitment, some families still find it challenging to finance an independent Waldorf education. RWS offers tuition adjustment to families who demonstrate financial need, and about 35% of our families receive some sort of assistance. We cannot eliminate the expense entirely, and there is no one formula that applies to all families. If Waldorf Education is right for your family but you are not sure how to afford it, we encourage you to apply for Financial Aid.
Financial Aid Deadline for 2023-2024 School Year: January 31, 2023
Richmond Waldorf School partners with TADS to determine financial aid awards. TADS conducts fair and confidential financial need assessments for families that want to be considered for Tuition Adjustment. The application is $55, and includes a means-based fee-waiver program for those that qualify. Please note that financial documentation is required. Contact us for more information or to better understand what you might qualify for.
