Last year, we combined the classroom supply and activity fees into the tuition. The faculty also requested that we include the cost of day field trips and other incidental fees that typically result in requests from parents into their class budget allocation. This change helped families budget these expenses are part of their tuition payments. We also introduced additional payment options (a 9-month and 11-month plan) to provide more flexibility for our families in planning and managing your budgets.

Each family will be auto-billed a $275 scrip deposit in June.
When the $275 obligation is met, it will be rolled over to the following school year.


Sibling Discount: 10% reduction in Waldorf school tuition for the first sibling and a 15% reduction for additional siblings. Parents are invited to waive the sibling discount and will be given a receipt for a tax-deductible donation.


The Waldorf School of Orange County is grateful for its ability to offer a comprehensive Tuition Adjustment Program. This wonderful program enables us to provide a Waldorf Education to families that deeply value it, regardless of their ability to pay the full tuition. It encourages socio-economic diversity while making a Waldorf education more accessible to families of varying economic backgrounds.

This year’s Tuition Adjustment Program application deadline has been extended from February 15, 2020 to March 15, 2020. We are currently considering moving the Tuition Adjustment Application deadline to November 15 for future years in order to provide an earlier confirmation for participants.

The school depends on parents to offer a commitment of time to festivals, fundraising and school development activities. Every family is also asked to make a financial commitment beyond their suggested tuition by:

  • Contributing to our Annual Giving Campaign
  • Generating more than $275 in Scrip earnings to support their child’s classroom funds
  • Supporting and participating in other fundraising activities
