Tuition Assistance

Making Education Accessible

At Toronto Waldorf School Foundation, we believe that every child deserves access to quality education, regardless of their family’s financial situation.

Our tuition assistance program is designed to help families who may not be able to afford full tuition fees. By providing financial aid, we aim to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential and become a valuable member of our community.

Supporting Our Students

We believe that cost shouldn’t be a barrier to an outstanding Waldorf education. Financial assistance is a cornerstone of our commitment to providing inclusive and accessible education.

We believe in making TWS as accessible as possible, so students with passion, determination and intellectual curiosity can discover themselves at TWS and go on to do great things.

With support from our generous community, more students can have the opportunity to secure a rewarding academic path.


Financial assistance is provided based on a demonstrated need and is available to families of students in Grades 1 – 12. Financial need is evaluated by an independent third party, Apple Financial Services.

Here are some highlights of financial assistance:

  • Admissions decisions are based on admission criteria, independent of financial need.
  • TWSF has allocated $300K in financial assistance for the 2021-2022 school year.
  • Current and incoming families are welcome to apply.
  • Domestic and international boarding students are eligible to apply.
  • Financial assistance is evaluated individually and awarded based on a family’s financial need.
  • Recipients can re-apply for assistance each year, and eligibility will be evaluated annually.
