Application & Enrollment Fees

  • A non-refundable fee of $55 is due with your application to Camellia Waldorf School.
  • An annual enrollment fee of $425 per family is due upon enrolling or re-enrolling. This non-refundable fee guarantees a space for the student. Re-enrolling families are offered a discount if they return the fee by the early deadline.
  • The Tuition Protection fee is 2% of the annual tuition. Families who prepay full tuition need not pay for tuition protection unless they wish to protect their investment; those who prepay and do not pay the fee must sign a waiver. The fee reduces the financial impact to the family and the school should a student withdraw before the end of the school year. It provides for partial payment of any unpaid charges for the balance of the year: the family will pay for 60 days from written notice of their intent to withdraw and the fund will pay for the balance of the year. The tuition protection fee appears on the first tuition bill.
  • Any payment returned fee: $30
  • Late payment fee: $20
  • Francis Guild (parent association) fee: $30
  • Each child (grades one through eight) must have a recorder or flute. The instruments cost between $40 and $90 and are available through the school. In addition, children in grades four through six may need a violin or cello, which may be rented or purchased.
