Tuition Assistance

Kimberton Waldorf School understands and honors the commitment of families to provide a Waldorf education for their children. For 75 years, we have partnered with families through our tuition assistance program to help make an independent Waldorf school education possible.

Tuition assistance is available for students in full-day kindergarten through grade 12. Families must reapply each year.

New families are eligible to apply for tuition assistance as soon as they apply for admission to the school (application is available November 1 of the preceding academic year), however decisions will not be made until the student completes the process and is accepted. Tuition assistance awards and contracts are issued at the end of February. Students interested in enrolling after the start of the school year will be considered if funds remain.

Applications from current families for the following school year must be received by January 15 so that tuition assistance awards can be offered with the re-enrollment contracts. Late applications will be reviewed after the tuition assistance process for new families has been completed; any remaining funds will then be awarded to qualified late applicants.

Think you can’t afford a KWS education? Think again.

Procedure

  • Complete the online Parent Financial Statement (PFS) appropriate for your family’s circumstances. You must upload your Federal Tax Return and other required documents as indicated in the online instructions.  Self-employed individuals are required to complete the Family Farm and Business Form, which is also available online.
  • A written explanation of any special circumstances of which the Tuition Assistance Committee needs to be aware should be emailed to kkerstetter@kimberton.org.
