2015-2016 School Year

At Corvallis Waldorf School, we believe that all children will benefit from our unique approach to education.  Therefore, we are committed to making Waldorf education accessible to all by working to keep our tuition and fees reasonable, and supporting many of our families with a substantial Tuition Adjustment Program.

Families with children who are determined to be eligible for the Kindergarten or Grades programs and who are at least 4 years old by July 1st of the year of enrollment may qualify for tuition assistance.  Please contact Peter Zaremba, School Director, with any questions you may have about the Tuition Adjustment Program at director@corvalliswaldorfschool.org.
