Tuition & Financial Aid

We believe a Waldorf education should be accessible to those families who value the ideals, curriculum and learning environment at Mountain Laurel Waldorf School. Families with genuine need are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance. Please note that while our aim is to assure the possibility of Waldorf education for all our students, our ability to do so is limited, and parents must be prepared to shoulder the majority of their tuition obligation. Aid is only available for kindergarten and grade students.

We have partnered with SSS, a national company specializing in Financial Aid Assessment for private schools, to streamline the financial aid process. If you are interested in applying for financial assistance, please do so online at (use code 4609), and submit a copy of your filed 2019 tax returns to the front office no later than March 16, 2020. Online applications and copies of tax returns received after the deadline will not be considered. The Financial Aid Committee will use the assessment information provided by SSS to determine tuition assistance awards. Formal notification of a determination will be provided by April 15, 2020.


Multiple Child Discount
Families with two enrolled children receive a 5% discount on total tuition (Line B).  Families with three or more enrolled children receive a 10% discount on total tuition.  This discount does not apply to families who receive tuition assistance.

Pre-Pay Discount
A discount of 5% is available if you choose to pay your tuition in full by March 6th, 2020.
