Full Tuition Rates:
Kindergarten: $18,500
Grades 1-8:    $22,150

Marin Waldorf School is a community of shared values within an economically diverse parent body. We strive to create access to our education to those who could otherwise not attend for financial reasons. For that reason, this year we are introducing Variant Tuition for kindergarten through 8th grade, which takes into account each families ability to pay. 

KINDERGARTEN THROUGH 8TH GRADE
tuition ranges from $9,250 to $22,150

To apply to pay below the full tuition rate, we ask families to complete an online application with TADS Tuition Management (click here to apply). TADS objectively evaluates each family and their ability to afford tuition.

Each child (grades 1-8) must have a recorder or pentatonic flute. The instruments cost between $35 and $50 and are available through the class teacher. In addition, children in grades four-six must have a violin, which may be rented or purchased.

Field trip fees are assessed annually for grades 3-8.

Payment plans are available through FACTS Tuition Management:
Full payment: No fee
2 payments: $10 fee with 2.5% interest

Scholarships and Sibling Discounts

There are four ways to receive tuition discounts: Marin Waldorf School’s Variant Tuition, The Basic Fund Scholarship, Guardsman Scholarship, and Sibling Discounts. Please note that Tuition Assistance and Sibling Discounts are available to children Kindergarten – 8th Grade.

Variant Tuition

Our Variant Tuition parameters help those in greatest need on our campus as well as those whose needs require a more modest award. To be considered for the 2018-2019 school year, click the link below to fill out the application.

Basic Fund and
Guardsmen Scholarships

The Basic Fund and Guardsmen Scholarships are privately funded external scholarships aimed at helping low-income families meet the costs of tuition after internal assistance has been awarded. These scholarships further reduce the tuition obligation for a family wishing to attend Marin Waldorf School. Learn more by visiting their websites:

 

Sibling
Discounts

If you have two or more children in the Kindergarten or grades, we offer a generous sibling discount: 20% for second child and 35% for the third child or additional children. This discount is given automatically to all families who do not qualify for Tuition Assistance.
