Opportunity, Means, and Investment

At Seattle Waldorf School, we believe that any qualified student who will benefit from attending SWS should have the opportunity. We believe that our school community should mirror the greater community in which we exist, with a student body that is representative of all socioeconomic backgrounds. To achieve this goal, Seattle Waldorf School is committed to providing a reduction in tuition, to the extent that our budget permits, to students whose families qualify.

We carefully calculate tuition to cover our operational costs including teacher salaries, facilities, and necessary supplies. Our financial aid program is supported by the school’s operating budget and targeted annual fundraising.

The value of a SWS education is measured in more than dollars and is an investment families choose for their child’s educational journey. 

Tuition and Fees

Updated Financial Aid Information will be available in September.

Families can anticipate annual tuition increases of 6–8%, which support faculty compensation, program enhancement, and facility improvements.

 Re-enrollment for current families will begin in February and tuition payments this year will be via our Blackbaud tuition management system.


Step 1 – Complete a Financial Needs Analysis with the Seattle Waldorf School payment program partner, FACTS Management Company.

Step 2 – Upload the required supporting documents to your FACTS account by the application deadline.

Affordability is essential to opportunity.
