Tuition Assistance 2022-23 School Year

We strongly feel that an education inspired by Waldorf principles should be available to any child, regardless of financial circumstances.  Committing to paying for your child’s education is a significant financial investment for a family.  Spring River has committed a portion of each year’s tuition, as well as fundraising efforts, to support the tuition assistance program.  These amounts will be distributed to applicants based on relative demonstrated financial need.  Tuition assistance grants are made per family for one year and must be renewed annually.  Spring River has appointed an independent Tuition Assistance Committee to review applications and make recommendations for awards.
