We believe that Waldorf education should be accessible to those families who seek it. Within our budget resources we do our best to provide assistance to as many families as we can. Families who are accepted into our school can apply for Tuition Assistance based on financial circumstances. Tuition Assistance is available from junior kindergarten and up.
- A maximum of 50% can be offered in the kindergarten and grade school but is based on the number of applicants and our budget.
- Tuition Assistance is not available for the childcare programs.
- Tuition Assistance applications to Apple Financial can be processed now for the 2017/18 academic year. March 1st, 2017 is the deadline. Please phone Apple directly if you have questions about any item on the application form. Note that renewal contracts and deposits are still due back at school by the required deadline.
Online Application Process
- Create a Parent Account Registration where you will be asked to provide your email address.
- A verification message stating, “account set up” will be sent to the email address you provide.
- Once this verification message is received you will be able to open the online registration form, which quite closely follows the format of last year’s form in terms of information requested.
- At the end of the process, requests will appear for the uploading of tax information, such as your T4, current year’s pay statements, etc. (If you have difficulty uploading this information, you can mark the information “to be mailed in.”
- Once all your information is uploaded the payment section will appear where you can pay the application fee by credit card or debit.
- A financial analysis, followed by a recommendation, is sent from Apple Financial to the Business Operations Manager at Waldorf Academy.
- The Business Operations Manager views the recommendations and all details are kept confidential. In consultation with the Admissions Manager, the amounts are finalized within the context of the policy and the strategic enrollment plan.
- The Admissions Manager communicates the amount available to the applicant. The deadline for acceptance of the offer is two weeks.
