Elementary School Admissions
We are now accepting applications for the 2013-14 year!
An Enrollment Application Form is submitted to the school along with the non-refundable $60 application fee. All questions on the application form are answered as fully as possible. Once the Enrollment Office has received the application and fee, the family will be contacted to schedule an interview with the teacher of the class. If there are currently no openings in the class, the child's name will be placed on the waiting list (see below) after having been interviewed. A child entering First Grade in the Fall of any school year must be six years of age by June 1 of the year s/he enrolls in First Grade.

The interview is an opportunity for parents and class teacher to discuss the education—its philosophical premises and methodology—as it pertains to the individual child. Parents present their expectations and confirm that Waldorf education is what they truly seek for their child. In meeting the student, the Class Teacher ensures that the school can accommodate this young person’s gifts and challenges.
Upon the successful completion of the interview, registration fees are paid and a Tuition and Enrollment Agreement signed. This document is mailed to the family by the Finance Office of the school. All fees and tuition are listed in the Tuition and Fee Schedule which is updated in January of each year. Tuition assistance is available for families in grades 1-8 for those who apply and qualify.
Any child whose application is received after the class has reached maximum enrollment will automatically be placed on a waiting list after having been interviewed. Should an opening arise, the parents and prospective student will be contacted. Special consideration is given to SFWS siblings and Waldorf transfer students. If the parents cannot be reached, the next name on the list will be called. The child's name will remain on the waiting list until he or she is enrolled, the parents request that the child's name be removed, an opening offered to the child is refused or there is no contact with the school for an extended period of time.
It is the parents' responsibility to check on the status of their child's application. No child will be added to a waiting list without first submitting an application along with the non-refundable application fee payment.
