Tuition Assistance

Sibling Discounts

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


Our Tuition Assistance Program parameters help those in greatest need on our campus as well as those whose needs require a more modest award. To be considered for a tuition assistance award for the 2017-2018 school year, you must complete the TADS application by Wednesday, February 1st, 2017.


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:



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.
