Tuition Adjustment Policy
Madison Waldorf School is committed to helping families afford the cost of a Waldorf education for their children. As part of this effort, MWS offers both sibling discounts and tuition adjustments. All MWS families pay the first 5% of their total tuition; discounts and adjustments are calculated on the remaining 95%.
Tuition Adjustment is available to qualified families. We use FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help evaluate financial need. Please see the Tuition Adjustment Process for more information.
