Affordable Tuition

We strive to make an education at Monadnock Waldorf School affordable for every family that desires it.  In the 2018-2019 school year, we are introducing a new Sliding Scale tuition model that reflects this commitment. Sliding Scale tuition means that each student’s tuition is determined based on each family’s ability to pay. Over the long term, this tuition model will make MWS accessible to more families, allowing us to grow as a diverse and dynamic school community.


Each family’s unique circumstances determine their placement on our tuition scale. Families apply for Sliding Scale placement online through FACTS, a tuition management service. Families who intend to pay full tuition do not need to submit a FACTS application nor provide any financial information to the school. 

At MWS, we commit to providing consistent Sliding Scale placement each year through graduation for families who meet their application deadlines. In doing so, we support our families and foster an inclusive learning environment on each of our three campuses.

Please explore the following documents to see our Sliding Scale estimates and view Frequently Asked Questions about our tuition.

Discounts, insurance & payment plans

Multiple Child Discount

The third enrolled child in a family automatically receives a 50% tuition discount. This discount may not be combined with Sliding Scale placement.

Tuition Insurance

For the financial protection of our families and MWS, each tuition contract is assessed a mandatory 1.2% fee (after adjustments for Sliding Scale placement) to fund tuition insurance.
