Tuition Assistance ​

Variable Tuition/ Tuition Assistance

The Waldorf School of Louisville uses a Variable Tuition model. Variable Tuition differs from Financial Assistance in the following ways: The final tuition amount will be a collaboration between the Business office and the family. By a frank and dynamic discussion, we can create an understanding of the unique financial circumstances of the family and the financial health of the school. This will streamline communication, eliminating the need for an appeals process.

Variable tuition amounts for all programs can range from $5,000 to Full Tuition. Each student and family, regardless of Tuition amount, is unique and important to our school community; both our accounting of revenue and the process by which we arrive at Variable Tuition will reflect this understanding.

We use TADS, a financial assessment organization, to provide a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably.  Recommendations from TADS will be sent to the Business Manager, and we will use this information toward establishing a tuition amount for this school year.

Tuition support is available on the basis of demonstrated need.  If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total cost of a Waldorf School of Louisville education, you may apply. Final assistance notices will be emailed by our Business Manager on a rolling basis as individual applications are finalized.

Financial Assistance applications may be completed online through a TADS account.   Re-enrolling families are asked to complete their applications no later than March 1 of the year in which they are applying.  Newly enrolling families must complete their application within 2 weeks for submitting an application.
