Tuition and Financial Assistance
An essential element of our Shepherd Valley philosophy is to be able to offer our Waldorf curriculum to as many students as possible. Being a modest school without an endowment for scolarships, this is an ongoing challenge. Financial assistance is offered on a case-by-case basis. Details for how families can apply are below. Our Tuition Assistance committee will review your familiy's information and award an amount based on a holistic look of your familiy's finances. On average assistance is over 20% of total tutition. Generally awards are offered for the Grades and full-time Pre-School/Kindergarten programs but occasionally additional awards are offerred.
Applying for Financial Assistance
Applicants must first apply to Shepherd Valley Waldorf School and be accepted into a program before recieving a tutition award.
Applicants are expected to apply online, at FACTS for the 2014-2015 school year. For FACTS instructions, check http://www.shepherdvalley.org/TA_Info.pdf. The following steps are necessary:
Applicants who have extenuating circumstances that may not be apparent in the FACTS application are encouraged to submit a personal letter to the TA Committee describing their situation. A FACTS application should be completed for each household, as indicated above in the Social Standards.
Your financial application will not be considered until you have been accepted into a program so please make sure you complete the full school application.
