Financial Aid

We believe that a Waldorf Education is a gift we can give our children, and Richmond Waldorf School is committed to socioeconomic diversity.

We understand that even with the greatest commitment, some families still find it challenging to finance a 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 Tuition Adjustment. 

For the 2020-2021 School Year, the deadline to apply is February 21, 2020.

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.
