Annual Tuition & Fees

The East Bay Waldorf School welcomes students of any color, race, gender, or sexual orientation, and all ethnic, national, cultural, social or religious backgrounds. Our school has over 40% ethnic diversity, of which we are proud.


Tuition and fees cover all costs except some class trips, food, after school care, extracurricular progams, music lessons, and minor incidental costs. Tuition is assessed on an annual basis. Tuition and Enrollment Schedules for the Lower School (K-8) are included in information packets, listing tuition amounts for the coming year once they have been announced, along with other enrollment information.

Tuition adjustment is available for families who demonstrate need. See Tuition Adjustment page for information and important deadlines.
