Tuition Assistance and a PWS Waldorf Education

Thank you for considering Pasadena Waldorf School for your student(s).

Tuition Assistance (TA) at PWS supports the diversity and inclusion that is a hallmark of the school’s educational and social mission, which enriches education and builds social capacities in us all.

TA is allocated to students entering kindergarten through grade 12 (and preschool with an older PWS sibling) based on proven need and the availability of funds. Need is determined by a Tuition Assistance Committee (TAC) utilizing an assessment by School and Student Services (SSS). SSS helps independent schools across the country determine a family’s financial need fairly, equitably, and confidentially.

The TA budget is calculated as a percentage of the school-wide tuition revenue anticipated for 2019-20. To provide TA to as many returning and new families as possible, PWS limits TA amounts to 50% of the student’s tuition, including the Nap program but not including Aftercare.
