Tuition • Program Fees

The founder of Waldorf Education, Rudolf Steiner, emphasized the importance of viewing school tuition not as a transaction to purchase a commodity, but as a contribution to provide a stable environment in which true learning can take place.  We contribute to the co-creation of our school in many ways — program fees, fundraising contributions, volunteer support, and through spreading the word about our programs.
