Financial Aid

Introduction

Waldorf education has been guided from its inception by the ideal that this unique education should be accessible to all families regardless of their economic situation. If the cost of a Waldorf education seems out of reach for your family, financial aid may be the answer. Our school believes that the primary responsibility for a child’s education lies with the family; however, we work with families to ascertain the level of aid necessary for their children to experience our Waldorf education.

In some parts of the world, Waldorf education is integrated into national educational systems and schools receive significant financial support from the state. In other places, as in the USA, Waldorf schools receive no support from the state or other organizations, and must find other ways to address economic diversity, usually through a mix of tuition, fundraising for the immediate term, and philanthropy for long-term stability.


NH Children's Scholarship Fund

The New Hampshire Children's Scholarship Fund (formerly Network for Educational Opportunity) provides scholarships for students who are struggling in their current school to allow them to attend a school that is a better fit for them and their learning needs. Scholarships are awarded to students based on highest financial need, funds raised, and the metrics in the Education Tax Credit law for tuition for private school, a public school outside of the student’s district or for homeschooling expenses. Several of our students have received awards from these funds as they entered the school, and we encourage you to investigate this opportunity to see if you are eligible.
