Tuition and Fees at Richmond Waldorf School

As an independent school, each family’s financial contribution to Richmond Waldorf School is important and adds to the welfare of our community. The primary responsibility for financing a child’s education rests with the family, and we seek families who are committed to making this important investment in their child’s future. We also believe that a Waldorf education should be available to any child, regardless of financial circumstance, and we balance this belief with the practical realities of our school’s financial requirements and needs. Families who wish to be considered for Tuition Adjustment can learn about our process and requirements here.

Uncertain about affording a Waldorf education? Reach out to us! We offer a robust financial aid program based on an impartial evaluation of each household’s contribution towards tuition. Financial aid is available from Pre-K through 8th grade, with special Middle School scholarships available each year.  We are here to support families and students who are eager to join our community and benefit from this unique educational experience.
