How Does Indexed Tuition Work?

The Eugene Waldorf School’s indexed tuition system is based on a family’s financial resources. Individual family determinations will be processed by an online financial application through TADS, a third-party assessment service. Families will be able to create an online account and complete the financial application for our school.

Parents may apply for indexed tuition via TADS (www.mytads.com). Applications and all supporting documentation should be submitted by May 1 for the following school year. Parents will be notified of their indexed tuition determination by email and will be notified of the acceptance deadline. An indexed tuition application can be completed at any point during the school year for newly enrolling students or if a families’ financial situation changes drastically mid-year.

The TADS application fee is $45 per family.

Families who choose to pay the full tuition amount are not required to complete the financial application via TADS.

Please contact Maren Tomblin at [email protected] for information on how to complete a TADS application.

Indexed Tuition Frequently Asked Questions

Continuous Enrollment

The journey through the Eugene Waldorf School curriculum is envisioned to begin in the early childhood program and end with graduation from eighth grade. Therefore, students are automatically re-enrolled each year through completion of eighth grade. Updated tuition and fees for the coming school year will be posted in February on the school’s website (www.eugenewaldorf.org) and in the school office. New students are initially admitted with a six-week provisional period within which both Parent and School may review the student’s progress and compatibility within the class. If the student withdraws during this provisional period for any reason, tuition is due and payable up to and including the date of withdrawal. After the end of the provisional period, the student is automatically enrolled.

Tuition Payment Options:

  • Lump sum prepayment
  • 10-Month payment plan (September – June)
  • 12-Month payment (August – July) ACH payment agreement and a consultation with Katsu Shibata in the school’s Accounting Office required.

Lump Sum Prepayment Discount:

4% discount if received by July 31;

3% by August 31;

2% by September 30. After September 30, only newly enrolling families can receive the discount. The lump sum discount will be issued in the form of a refund check when full payment is received by the applicable deadline. Refund checks will be issued within 7-10 days of receiving the payment.
