Admission Process and Forms
We appreciate your interest in Waldorf School of New Orleans.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2015-16 school year for classes in which there is space. Please go to our online application process here. We typically begin accepting applications for the next school year in early January.
(Please be aware that due to the high amount of applicants for Early Childhood (Nursery and PreK/K) and a limited amount of space, your child will be placed on a waitlist at this time. There is also a waitlist for next year's Grade 4/5)
Please see below for our student application procedure.
1. School Visit
Please attend an Open House (Feb 28th, 10-12 pm) or School Tour (every 1st Wednesday of the month, 8:45am). It's a great way to see the school and meet our teachers.
2. Application and Fee
Please submit your admissions application online here and pay the application fee of $50. Once all information has been filled out, payment received, as we receive your child's current and past school records, the application is complete.
After the application is complete, an interview will be scheduled for you and your child with the appropriate school faculty.
4. Class Visit or Play Date
After the interview, your child will be invited for a play date of school visit. Early childhood students visit the classroom for 1 1/2 hours without a parent, and students in grades 1-8 visit the class for which they are applying for three days.
5. Admission Decision
Once this process has been completed and a decision about the applicant’s admission is made, the parents or guardians will be notified by phone and in writing. The Waldorf School of New Orleans reserves the right to make a final admissions decision at any point in this process if it is determined that we may not be able to meet a child's or family's needs.
The Waldorf School of New Orleans admits students of any race, color, creed, and national or ethnic origin.
6. Agreement to Enroll
If your child is invited to join the Waldorf School of New Orleans, your prompt acceptance will be important. Upon agreeing to enroll your child, enrollment information will be filled out online and applicable fees will be due.
