Tiered Tuition

We are committed to creating a school community that reflects the economic diversity of Maine. Tiered Tuition is available to families with children entering Early Childhood (5 days) through Grade 12. Families who are unable to afford the full cost of a Maine Coast Waldorf School education are encouraged to apply for a tuition adjustment to match their ability to contribute to the school. Then, through a process that considers a family’s income and assets, the school makes a final determination about the tuition that is appropriate based upon the family’s financial means.

Once a family has submitted an Application for Admission, they may begin the process of applying for a tiered tuition. Maine Coast Waldorf works with TADS, an educational consulting company, to measure a family’s financial means fairly, equitably, and confidentially. Recommendations from TADS are used by the School to determine an appropriate tuition. TADS information can be found here. The TADS application forms can be found here.

For more information on Tiered Tuition and the application process, please contact our Finance Director, Barbara Guffin at 207-865-3900, ext. 101 or email finance@mainecoastwaldorf.org.

In addition to tiered tuition, we also offer the following tuition payment plans for your convenience.

Tuition Insurance Plan

The School offers parents the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan as a means to insure their financial obligation under the terms of Maine Coast Waldorf's Enrollment Contract. Parents who do not pay the total tuition charges by June 1st under the Annual payment plan must participate in the Dewar Tuition Refund Plan or present evidence of having secured comparable insurance coverage elsewhere.
