For all other tuition rates, sibling discounts are based on a graduated scale according to the tuition level.

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. Beginning on Monday, March 16, families will be able to create an online account and complete the financial application for our school. Current families must complete a TADS application to have tuition calculations using the indexed tuition scale for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic the previous TADS deadline of April 17th has been extended. Please inquire with the school about a new end date for the TADS process.

Prospective families may also complete a TADS application in order to obtain a tuition determination for the 2020-2021 school year. Families who have applied to TADS by April 17th will receive tuition determinations in mid May at which time contracts will be sent to all families who have applied to  TADS.

Other prospective families may complete the TADS application on a rolling basis throughout the year. All applications must include the prior year tax return. The TADS application fee is $45 per family.

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

Under the new indexed system, the tuition ranges are from a minimum of $6,350 to a maximum of $12,117 for grades students, and from a minimum of $6,350 to a maximum of $9,599 for early childhood students. The indexed tuition scale will not apply to two and three day early childhood schedules. These rates are: $4,053 (two day) and $5,917(three day).

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