Bundled Tuition

Our bundled tuition covers far more than traditional expenses. We do not ask caregivers to pay additional fees for books, artist-quality supplies, group instrumental lessons or ensemble for grades 4 - 8, or class field and camping trips.

Tuition Payment Plans

We understand that choosing an independent school involves a significant financial commitment. The Waldorf School of Baltimore is dedicated to making our joyful and holistic approach to education accessible to all families. With this in mind, we offer multiple payment plans in addition to generous financial assistance to those who qualify.

Waldorf offers three payment options: 1 Pay, 10 Pay, or 11 Pay. Families may choose their payment date to be on the 5th or 20th of the month, starting May 20 or June 5. Families may choose their plan and payment method when completing the Enrollment Contract.

Families enrolling late, who choose an extended payment plan, will catch up with any missed payments at the time of enrollment.

Optional Fees

Aftercare Program:

An Forest Explorers Aftercare Program is available for children enrolled in Preschool (Age 3) through Grade 8.


Optional programs that fall outside of the school day, such as after-school sports programs , may have additional costs.
