Admissions – Grades


grades3Register Now to visit our school the fall preceding your child’s enrollment.


Complete and return your admissions application form along with a recent passport-size photograph of your child and a non-refundable application fee of $60.00 made payable to The Waldorf School of Philadelphia. Applications are always acknowledged.

We continue to accept applications on a rolling basis until all of our classes are full. If a wait pool is established, the school will consider students from the pool who contribute to balanced classrooms.

Admissions Visit

Applicants entering First Grade will be invited for a first grade assessment and a half-day visit to a kindergarten classroom. Applicants for 2nd - 8th grade will be invited for an individual meeting with the class teacher followed by a three-day classroom visit.



Enrollment Decision

You will be notified of our enrollment decision shortly after your admissions visit.

Acceptance and Enrollment

Enrollment contracts are typically sent with the letter of acceptance. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is to be returned with the signed enrollment contract. Families have ten days from the date of the acceptance letter to make a decision.
