Tuition & Fees

an investment for Your child’s educational journey

We carefully calculate tuition to cover our operational costs including teacher salaries, facilities, and necessary supplies. Our financial aid program is supported by the school’s operating budget and targeted annual fundraising.

The healthy social life is only found when, in the mirror of each human soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the community, the virtue of each one is living.

Rudolf Steiner

It is the intention and policy of the Davis Waldorf School to welcome students from the broadest possible range of the social, economic, and cultural spectrum. A diverse community benefits all of our students, staff and faculty. We offer a generous sibling discount and tuition assistance to families who qualify.

Although our school year runs for nine months, we spread payments over eleven months to provide parents with a lower payment. Payment plans begin in July, and payment options include: 11 monthly payments; 10 monthly payments; 4 quarterly payments; or 2 semi-annual payments. If you pay in full by June 2024, you will receive a 2% discount on annual tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year.

We offer a generous sibling discount on tuition rates to siblings attending kindergarten through eighth grade. Full tuition is charged for the oldest child. The second child receives a 20% discount, and subsequent children receive a 40% discount. Class fund fees are not discounted. Receipt of the sibling discount requires continued attendance of the sibling(s). Should a sibling withdraw or enter during the school year, the sibling discount will be adjusted.

We carefully calculate tuition to cover our operational costs including teacher salaries, facilities, and necessary supplies. Our financial aid program is supported by the school’s operating budget and targeted annual fundraising.

The value of a DWS education is measured in more than dollars and is an investment families choose for their child’s educational journey.
