The office then sends an email contract through TADS. Parents complete the contract and submit a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit to secure their child’s place.
A home visit by the teacher is arranged with the family.
4. GRADES process:
For students applying to grades 1 through 8, you’ll be prompted to complete A RECORDS RELEASE FORM and submit it through TADS. This will also authorize us to contact your child’s current and former teachers. Once signed and submitted, this will be sent to your child’s current school. We require all records including evaluations, IEP’s and 504’’s before a visit is scheduled.
A 3 full day visit minimum is scheduled through the admissions coordinator.

- Upon written notification of acceptance, parents complete the contract and submit a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit to secure your child’s place.
- Your child’s teacher will contact you to schedule a time to meet with you and your child prior to the start of school.
Conditions of Enrollment – Each newly enrolled student is considered on “conditional enrollment” for the first six weeks of attendance. During this time, the student will have the opportunity to become familiar with the school and the teachers will be able to serve the student’s needs and abilities. At the end of the first six weeks, either the parents or the school may terminate the enrollment contract, based on the terms stated in our Tuition Agreement and Enrollment Contract.
Here at Seacoast Waldorf School we abide by our Mariners Code of Conduct.
