Common Questions

Do you offer sibling discounts?

Yes, there is a sibling discount. The first sibling receives 20% off and the second and third receive 40% off.

What are the payment options?

TADS is a mandatory payment service for all families for online enrollment and tuition contracts. The Waldorf School of San Diego does not charge families interest for paying tuition on a monthly basis. TADS assesses a $50 administrative fee for tuition agreement options of more than 2 payments. TADS will assess late or returned payment fees in addition to fees assessed by The Waldorf School of San Diego. Tuition Agreement set-up is required and is done concurrent with registration. Completing this important step will secure your child’s place in class. Your registration is not guaranteed with incomplete enrollment and tuition agreement.

What is the monthly tuition policy?

Tuition is due on the 5th or the 20th of the month via TADS, an automatic payment system. A late fee of $30.00 is charged, in addition to any fees assessed by TADS, for all payments not collected by the selected due date (5th or 20th) of the month that payments are due. Students will be removed from class when account balances are 30 days overdue. Specific guidelines are outlined in the Enrollment Contract (available through your TADS account upon completion of your online registration).
