Service Obligation/Volunteer Hours
Waldorf schools traditionally operate with generous contributions of volunteer hours, talent, and donations from their families. This responsibility not only enhances the running of the school, but also strengthens the diversity and fabric of our school community. At the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh we require a minimum amount of service hours per family based on the program in which the child is enrolled: 40 hours year for the grades program, 20 hours per year for 5-day Kindergarten and Nursery programs, and 12 hours per year for 2-and 3-day Nursery program. For families with children in multiple programs, total required hours are not cumulative; the total number of service hours is dependent on the program of the oldest child. Volunteer hours can be fulfilled with a wide range of activities both on and off campus. Some examples include: school event planning and execution, committee work, maintenance projects, clerical work, or grounds care. Service hours not completed will be billed at the rate of $20.00 per hour to be paid at the end of the school year.
We offer a sibling discount: tuition for the first child is the full amount, the second child receives a 10% discount, and the third (or more) child receives a 15% discount. Little Friends, Morning Garden and the Extended Care program participants do not qualify for sibling discounts. Students who qualify for the Scholarship Program are not eligible for the Sibling Discount.
The Waldorf School of Pittsburgh is committed to developing a student body that reflects a diverse community. Our Scholarship Fund has been established to assist families in meeting tuition requirements and is available to students in 5-day Nursery through eighth grade. Scholarship assistance is not available for the 2 or 3 day Nursery, Morning Garden, or Little Friends programs. For more information about the scholarship program, please click here.
