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 2.0% of tuition. It is a non-refundable fee itemized on your statement. This fee is payable on the first month (which is July, if not entering mid-year) that tuition is billed for the current school year. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) who choose the one annual payment plan may elect to waive the Tuition Protection Fee. If tuition is paid in full by August 1st, prior to school starting, and the Tuition Protection Fee is waived, there will be no refund of tuition. In the event that Parent(s)/Guardian(s) decide to withdraw child(ren) from the school prior to the end of the school year, Parent(s)/Guardian(s) agree to provide the school with written notice of intent to withdraw at least 60 days prior to the withdrawal date. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) agree to pay all tuition due from date of notice to date of withdrawal. In the event that Parent(s)/Guardian(s) provide less than 60 days written notice of intent to withdraw, Parent(s)/Guardian(s) agree to pay full tuition for 60 days from the date of notice. Upon withdrawal, the remaining balance is figured on the number of weeks remaining in the school year. Partial weeks will be calculated as whole weeks. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) who withdraw a new student within the first 30 days of classes will be responsible for the payment of all non-refundable fees and tuition for the period of time attended only.
    • Any payment returned fee: $30
    • Late payment fee: $20
    • Francis Guild (parent association) fee: $30
    • Flutes and Recorders, violins and cellos: Pentatonic flutes are required for 1st grade, diatonic flutes for 3rd grade, and recorders for 6th grade. Unless otherwise requested, the school will purchase the instrument, and the cost (typically between $40-90) will be billed to the family. If you already have the appropriate flute or recorder for your child, notify your teacher. In addition, children in grades four through six may need a violin or cello, which may be rented or purchased.
    • Sports Uniforms: Uniforms are required for team sports. For some sports, the school lends uniforms to players. Parents are charged the replacement cost for damaged or items that are not returned at the end of the season. For other sports, parents must purchase uniforms and proper gear for their student. Some sports require a fee for participation.
    • Additional Fees and Charges: In addition to tuition and the fees listed above, you may incur additional costs, including but not limited to fees for some activities, instrument rental or purchase, and music lessons. The amount of these fees will vary and will be announced as they occur. When necessary, the school may, at parent or guardian expense, recommend and expect tutoring, external consultations, or special services which the school does not provide.
