FINANCIAL AID

Kimberton Waldorf School is pleased to assist qualifying families with tuition through its Financial Aid / Tuition Assistance program. 

Tuition assistance is available for new and continuing families when at least one child is in grades K through 12.

Families must reapply each year. Changes in income, family size, etc. may result in increased or decreased awards.

Guidelines
  • Families with incomes of up to $120,000 may be eligible to apply for tuition assistance.
     
  • New families are eligible to apply for tuition assistance upon acceptance to the school. Mid-year acceptances will be considered if funds remain.
     
  • Applications from current families must be received on or before April 1. Late applications will be reviewed when the admissions process has been completed. Any remaining funds will then be awarded to qualified late applicants.
     
  • It is not possible for the Tuition Assistance Committee to become involved in any financial arrangements between parents. Non-custodial parents are expected to contribute financial documentation to the Tuition Assistance Committee.
Procedure
  • Complete the online Parent Financial Statement (PFS) appropriate for your family’s circumstances. Self-employed individuals are required to complete the Family Farm & Business Form, which is also available online.
     
  • Submit via mail or  to the Tuition Assistance Committee at Kimberton Waldorf School the following additional documentation:
    • A copy of the current year Federal Tax Return, including all schedules. For self-employed individuals, copies of both business and personal tax returns are required.
    • A written explanation of any special circumstances you want the Tuition Assistance Committee to be aware of.
