The $325 registration fee; 10 percent of the annual tuition cost; and a
signed tuition contract are due upon enrollment. The supply fee, tuition insurance payment and SCRIP deposit all are due
June 15 or upon enrollment after that date. These fees are
nonrefundable. *The SCRIP deposit will be refunded at the end of the school year if the amount of a

are due on the 15th of the month. Any payments received after the 20th
of the month must include a $50 late fee. Payments may be made via
check, cash, or Mastercard/Visa (credit card payments are subject to a
2.5% convenience charge).

Sanderling Waldorf School will prorate tuition appropriately.
that the registration fee is nonrefundable
and payable in full for each
student regardless of his/her date of entry into the school.
there a trial period?
When families sign the tuition contract, they are legally committing to
for that student for the entire year. We provide a six-week trial
period during which either the student's family or the school may find
good reason for the child to withdraw. Withdrawal
during the six-week trial period releases the family from the
responsibility for paying the remainder of the annual tuition. Tuition
and fees already paid are nonrefundable. After the trial
period, families are responsible for the annual tuition, even in the
case of early withdrawal for reasons other than relocation of the
family or loss of income. Tuition loss due to withdrawal based on job
location or loss of income will be covered by the school's Tuition
Insurance Fund. For reasons other than relocation of the family or loss of income, if
the class is full; a replacement
is found; and a 30-day written notice of withdrawal is provided,
tuition may be prorated including payment for four weeks of school
after receiving the written notice.
tuition assistance available?
assistance may be available for families of students enrolling
the final Kindergarten year and/or Grades 1-8. Sanderling Waldorf School believes
be available to families of all economic levels. We also believe that
both the school and these families need to stretch their respective
budgets to make this possible. Tuition assistance is completely funded
by Sanderling Waldorf School's tuition revenues and fundraising
efforts. We do
not receive any funds from any other source to make this program
possible. Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted by March 7 or upon enrollment after March 7 of each year.
Families receiving tuition assistance must re-apply each year. The
school is unable to grant every request for assistance.
I have any obligations beyond tuition?
Sanderling Waldorf School is powered by its parent body. Your volunteer
participation through community meetings, festivals and other school
activities is vital to the health of the school. Nursery/Kindergarten
and Grades families are asked
to volunteer regularly in various capacities, with a suggested time donation of 40 hours per year.
