GIVING & DONATIONS

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

It is part of our culture and tradition to keep tuition at a modest level, allowing those who can give more to make tax-deductive contributions, and enabling us to provide financial assistance to community members who could not afford to be here without help, but are dedicated to Waldorf education. Our tuition is low in comparison to other private schools in the area. This is part of what keeps our school vibrant with a myriad of families and experiences. Please help us to support this important mission and maintain the sense of community that makes Summerfield so wondrous. Thank you for your generosity.
