Welcome to the Upper Valley Waldorf School!

Dear Parents,

On these admissions pages, you will find information about our application process, the cost of attendance, and information about our tuition adjustment program.

The admissions process is meant to give parents as much information as they need in order to make an informed decision about enrolling at UVWS. We welcome every opportunity to talk with prospective parents to answer questions and share our passion for our school. So please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

The most complete expression of our unique blend of traditional academics and the arts is found in the Waldorf classroom and its surroundings. We invite you to visit us and experience firsthand the beauty and simplicity of the environment that we have created to foster learning and growth.

I look forward to meeting you and your child during the admissions process.

Admissions Policies

  • We accept applications and admit students throughout the year, space permitting.
  • Subject to the availability of funds, mid-year applications for tuition adjustment will also be considered.
  • Students enrolling in preschool typically turn 3-years old prior to September 1. Younger children may be considered but all students should be toilet-trained.
  • In order to be eligible for first grade, children typically turn 6-years old by June 1 before the September in which they begin. Each child is assessed for readiness.
  • When a student transfers from another school, class placement depends on the academic, developmental and social progress of the child.
  • We seek to develop a culturally and economically diverse student body and welcome students of any race, religion, gender or ethnic/national origin.
