The Washington Waldorf School’s financial aid program has two goals: to provide qualified students with a Waldorf education who might not otherwise be able to afford one, and to develop a student body that is reflective of the School’s values and mission regardless of financial status. Financial aid decisions in no way impact student admissions decisions.
Approximately 20% of the WWS annual operating budget is devoted to financial aid. This is one of the highest percentages among private schools in the area and is indicative of the School’s commitment to providing affordable Waldorf education. Financial limitations should not deter a qualified student from applying to the Washington Waldorf School, and parents are encouraged to apply for financial aid. At the same time, the Financial Aid Office is mindful of its obligation to assign funds responsibly, prudently, and consistently.
