Tuition can be paid in full or in semi-annual or monthly installments through the FACTS tuition program. We also offer sibling discounts and a tuition assistance program.

Sibling Discount: Families with more than one child enrolled receive a discount on the younger child’s tuition. The second child enrolled receives a 10% discount; the third child receives a 20% discount; the fourth (and greater) child receives a 30% discount.

Tuition Assistance: Available Tuition Assistance money varies each year, and is awarded in late spring for the coming school year. Families may apply online at the FACTS Grant & Aid website. Our policy limits the amount awarded to 50% of a family’s tuition.

We also accept Ohio Ed Choice scholarships.

All families enrolled in the Cincinnati Waldorf School are required to use the FACTS Tuition Payment Program to pay tuition and/or student fees through automatic bank withdrawal unless they choose to pay tuition and/or fees in full by June 1st. There is an annual FACTS processing fee of $50 which is paid directly to CWS.

The process is simple; families new to FACTS automatic bank withdrawal must complete an online payment agreement through FACTS e-Cashier.  Families who have previously used FACTS automatic bank withdrawal will automatically be renewed each year by the Business Office.


Student fees provide the Cincinnati Waldorf School faculty the ability to plan class experiences both inside and outside the classroom based on a fixed, secure fund per student. Class trips include such field experiences as theater productions, Pentathlon, Medieval Games, Renaissance trip, canoe trip, ropes courses, climbing trip, camping, farm block experience, pumpkin patch, etc. Parents will not be asked for additional fees throughout the school year to cover class experiences, including field trips, with the exception of the Grade 8 class trip.

Remaining fees necessary for the Grade 8 Trip will be earned by each individual family with the hope that a family will encourage their student to earn the remaining amount via home & community service (i.e. child care services, home chores, summer work, etc.). The remaining fees necessary will be determined by the end of Grade 7.
