Financial Assistance

Madison Waldorf School is committed to helping families afford a Waldorf education for their children through tuition adjustment and sibling discounts.

Tuition Adjustment

Tuition Adjustment is available to qualified families. Any family with a grade school student or any family with an early childhood student enrolled 4 or 5 full days may apply for tuition adjustment. We use FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help evaluate financial need. Please see the Tuition Adjustment Process section of this web site for more information.

Sibling Discount

Sibling Discount is 20% for the second child; 30% for the third child; 40% for the fourth child, etc. This discount is given automatically to all families who do not qualify for Tuition Adjustment. The sibling discount can be waived and the discount used as a tax-deductible donation for the Annual Giving Fund. This discount is given automatically to all families who do not receive Tuition Adjustment.
