Financial Aid Information
Seacoast Waldorf School values diversity of all kinds, including economic, and offers need-based financial aid to qualified families. While the school cannot offer financial aid on Early Childhood tuition, it does offer tuition assistance to full time students in second year Kindergarten (enrolled 5 days until 3pm) through the Elementary and Middle school. Although funding is limited for financial aid, the Financial Aid Committee does its best to meet the needs of individual families and has the authority to offer gifts of up to 50% of tuition costs. Seacoast Waldorf School uses TADS Tuition Management Services to process financial aid applications. To apply for financial aid, TADS provides the following worksheet as a guide to help you prepare your application information.

For families enrolling an additional child, a five percent (5%) tuition discount is applied to a second child enrolled in the school, 10% for a third child and 15% for fourth child or more. Sibling discounts are available only to those students not receiving financial aid.
