Tuition Assistance is available for families with children entering the Mixed-Age Kindergarten to Grade 12. Visit our tuition assistance policy page.

The Waldorf School of Garden City works with a company called TADS to process tuition assistance requests.  Make sure to complete your TADS financial aid application as early as possible to increase your chances of receiving aid.   TADS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from TADS are used by the Waldorf School of Garden City award committee in accordance with its policies to determine the award amount.

Application Information

Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at by clicking on the TADS financial aid application icon at the bottom of the page.

While the school continues to accept tuition assistance applications, please be aware that tuition assistance applications received after 4/1 qualify for a maximum of a 20 percent of tuition award.
