Consistent with our mission as a welcoming and inclusive learning community, Aurora Waldorf School strives to open our classrooms to any and all students, regardless of need. Though our full tuition is within range of other area private schools, close to 80% of our families receive some form of tuition reduction.

Financial Aid

We provide significant tuition assistance based on financial need, and work closely with qualifying families to support their choice of a Waldorf education. Our Tuition Assistance Committee evaluates each application individually. Awards are determined in part on recommendations by FACTS (or, an independent and confidential online tuition aid organization.

Beginning January 1, 2018, up to $10,000 can be distributed annually to pay for the cost of sending a child to a public, private or religious elementary or secondary school.  Previously, money invested in a 529 account could only be used for college expenses.

If you have any questions about a 529 plan, please consult with a financial advisor.
