The objective of the Waldorf School of New Orleans is to foster diversity within the community it serves. The Tuition Assistance  Program (TAP) is designed to enable qualified students to attend Waldorf School of New Orleans who might not otherwise be able to  attend for financial reasons.  

Policy Highlights 

  • Students are eligible for Tuition Assistance in their final year of Kindergarten through Grade 8

  • Timely submission of the Tuition Assistance application (PFS) and documents is required; awards will not be granted  without all required documents (see below). 

  • Incomplete applications will not reviewed by the Tuition Assistance Committee. 

  • The Tuition Assistance Committee grants assistance on the basis of demonstrated financial need and availability of funds.  ∙ All Tuition Assistance awards are made for one year only and will be reviewed annually. 

  • A family’s personal lifestyle choices that result in increased expenses or decreased income cannot be underwritten by the  Tuition Assistance fund (and hence Waldorf School of New Orleans donors). 

  • The Tuition Assistance process is held in strict confidence and with deep respect for privacy. 

  • Tuition Assistance applications are only considered in cases where all balances and fees are current. ∙ Waldorf School of New Orleans Supply Fees, Facility Fees, and Instrument Fees are not eligible for Tuition Assistance. ∙ The maximum amount awarded is forty percent (40%) of tuition.
