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

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

Tuition payments are made through FACTS, Seattle Waldorf School’s online tuition billing and payment system.  Through FACTS, families can establish automatic recurring payments from a bank account or credit card, or make payments via telephone or online.  Credit card options include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Affordability is essential to opportunity.
