The Charlottesville Waldorf School (CWS) strives to develop a diverse student population and to serve every family enrolled in the school that values a Waldorf education as a family priority. The school’s Tuition Assistance (TA) program addresses families’ needs for help with tuition while being mindful of the financial health of the school.  Tuition support is available on the basis of demonstrated need.  It may not be possible, however, to accommodate every family’s unique circumstance.  Therefore, the School asks parents/guardians to pursue all other sources of income for tuition payments. 

We use TADS, a third-part financial assessment organization, to provide a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably.  Recommendations from TADS are used by the Tuition Assistance Committee in accordance with its policies to determine the tuition assistance award amount. 

Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online in conjunction with your application to CWS.  Completed tuition assistance applications are due by January 27, 2014.

Consideration for budgeted Tuition Assistance funds are given in the following order.  We do not reserve funds for families whose required TADS information is incomplete or submitted after the due date.
 
1. Applications from current recipients who have completed renewal requirements by stated due dates.
2. New applications from currently enrolled students with completed requirements by the stated due date.
3. New applications from candidates accepted for admission with completed requirements by the stated due dates.
4. Renewal and new applications completed after specified due dates, if funds remain available.
