Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid and Tuition Adjustment

The Emerson Waldorf School refers to Financial Aid support as Tuition Adjustment or TA.  We use TADS, a financial assessment organization, to provide a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably.  Recommendations from TADS will be sent to the Tuition Adjustment committee at the school, and we will use this information along with your narrative responses toward tuition adjustment this school year.

Tuition support is available on the basis of demonstrated need.  If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total cost of an Emerson Waldorf School education, you may apply.

Recommendations from TADS are used by the Tuition Adjustment Committee at the school, in accordance with its policies, to determine the award amount.  Final awards notices will be mailed by the committee.

Financial Applications for tuition adjustment may be completed online starting in January of the school year you are applying. We offer tuition adjustment for students applying for Kindergarten to High School; tuition adjustment is not available for Morning Garden Parent/Child, Nursery, or Summer Camp.


The Emerson Waldorf School accepts North Carolina Opportunity Scholarships and also offers Diversity Scholarships to income-qualifying families.
