Making Seattle Waldorf School Affordable

At Seattle Waldorf School, we believe that any qualified student who will benefit from attending SWS should have the opportunity. We believe that our school community should 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.
