We welcome your application to Suncoast Waldorf School and we will help guide you through the various steps of the process. If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to come for a tour to see how children in the Waldorf classrooms are engaged–head, heart, and hands– in learning.
Please join us in one of our weekly Visitor Mornings hosted each Thursday for a chance to step into our classrooms and see the difference. Just call the school and let us know you will be joining us 727-786-8311.
If you are unable to make a Thursday visit, we will arrange another convenient time. You are also encouraged to come to any Open Houses that you see posted on our web site. Once you have visited the school and have gotten answers to your questions, you are now ready to start the application process.
Just click on the TADS link above to apply. Once the school is notified of your application, you will receive a telephone call from the teacher to set up an appointment with you for a conversation about your child or children and what you are hoping for in their education. Next, your child will be invited to visit the class for one to three days. The teacher will notify the admissions office that your child is accepted into the class and you will receive a welcome letter from the school.
The final step is the enrollment step which you also do online. Any questions you have about tuition or enrollment fees can be answered by Richard Alday, our Administrator and Business Manager at 727 786-8311. Enrollment begins in January of each year for the following September. We do accept students, space permitting, throughout the school year on a rolling basis.
Our school accepts scholarship money from the “Step Up For Students Scholarship Program” of the State of Florida. If you do not qualify income-wise for the SUFS funds, read more about the Sustainable Tuition Program and how to apply.
It is our goal to make the application process as smooth as possible and to give you the assurance that you have made the right choice for your child. The admissions process normally requires two to three weeks to complete fully.
