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.
