The Waldorf School of St. Louis is dedicated to economic diversity. Approximately 50% of WSSL families receive financial assistance. In addition to the financial assistance application our process includes personal meetings with each family to better understand each situation. We work together with our families to do our best to make Waldorf education available to those who seek it while maintaining healthy school finances.

Tuition and Fee Policies

All Tuition Payments will be thru FACTS Tuition Management Company. Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account or from most major credit cards. You will receive an e-mail invitation from FACTS with information necessary to enroll once the school has received your signed Tuition & Enrollment Contract.

    • Annual / Biannual Payment:  You may submit your tuition in one or two lump sum payments. One lump sum payments are due by July 20, 2017. For two lump sum payments, the first lump sum payment is due on or before July 20th and the second payment is due on or before January 20th. FACTS charges a fee of $0 for one lump sum payment and $10 for two lump sum payments.
    • Monthly Tuition Payments:  FACTS charges an annual fee of $43 for this service.  Additional fees may apply depending on payment type. Tuition payments through FACTS are made in twelve installments for the months of June through May or ten installments for the months August through May.  There are three payment dates available each month: 10th, 20th, and last day of the month. If you are enrolling in the FACTS monthly tuition program after July 20th, you may be asked to pay The Waldorf School of St. Louis directly for the first month(s) of tuition.

Families with two or more children enrolled in any of the school’s five day programs will receive a 20% discount on the tuition of the younger child and any additional, younger siblings.

Tuition payments more than 30 calendar days late will require a meeting, in person, with the Finance Committee to discuss resolution of the problem.  Accounts more than 60 days delinquent without resolution will be handled by a collection agency.
