Affordable Tuition

High quality education for our children is a commitment that all parents want to make. We know that these early investments in our child’s education have lifelong benefits and lead to successful, satisfying lives guided by core values and solid competencies. Incorporating a tuition payment into the family budget can be daunting for many of us. At Monadnock Waldorf School we are committed to doing all we can to make a Waldorf education financially accessible for your family.
 

a commitment to economic diversity

Monadnock Waldorf School is dedicated to providing the finest education while remaining financially fair and inclusive for each family. We strive to make it possible for any committed family to create a place for their child at our school, regardless of the family’s financial circumstances. Our sliding scale tuition system, based on a family’s income, assets and other factors, enables children of widely varying family circumstances to be part of Monadnock Waldorf School.  Approximately 49% of our families participate in the sliding scale process. The evaluation process for tuition determination is confidential and begins with an application via FACTS, our tuition management service provider.


TUITION & FEES

Below we present our tuition as a range to give you an idea of your monthly tuition payment. The low end of the range shows the amount for a family receiving our maximum tuition adjustment and ranging up to the high end for the family who needs no tuition adjustment in order to attend. Because we are committed to making a Waldorf education financially accessible, we look forward to talking with you about your individual family needs and are ready to assist you in walking through the tuition setting steps for your family.
