2014-15 Financial Assistance Process
Financial Assistance is available for kindergarten (5 day program only) through 12th grade. It is our wish that each child be able to attend Summerfield Waldorf School & Farm regardless of the family's financial situation. Financial assistance grants are awarded to parents to help realize this goal. These financial assistance grants are based on financial information submitted by parents. The total amount of financial assistance funding is determined by the Board of Directors and is set at the time of drafting the operating budget for the school year. The report we receive from FACTSTuitionAid.com is an additional tool for our Financial Assistance Committee to use in meeting our intention of awarding financial assistance grants in the most objective way possible.
If your family has a student in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade and is exploring the private school option for the first time, you may also look into scholarship availability through The BASIC Fund, www.basicfund.org. The BASIC Fund is separate from Summerfield's financial assistance program and offers scholarships based on its own criteria.
