Making Seattle Waldorf School Affordable

Seattle Waldorf School believes that any qualified student who will benefit from attending SWS should have the opportunity. We strive to have our school community 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 excellent students whose families qualify.
