Tuition Assistance at PWS


In order to cultivate diversity in our community, improve the educational and social experience for our students, and to improve accessibility to this education, Portland Waldorf School is pleased to offer tuition assistance. 

Tuition assistance is offered to existing families and incoming families based on demonstrated need. We use an outside service, TADS, to manage the processing of tuition assistance applications. Tuition-assistance grants are awarded by the Tuition Assistance (TA) Committee, overseen by the PWS Board of Trustees. The TA committee is a volunteer committee comprised of PWS community members, including employees and parents. 

For returning families, the application deadline for tuition assistance for the 2014/15 school year is February 7th. Applications will be accepted after this date; however, available funds will be limited. For new families, tuition assistance applications can be submitted at any time and will be considered once the student (or students) has been admitted. 

Please read the Philosophy & Information and Process, Policies & Deadlines pages for important information before you apply.
