Why is BVWS more affordable than other local private schools?

Boulder Valley Waldorf School has pioneered a “Sensible Tuition Model” designed to offer private education for a wider range of Boulder Valley families.

In 2016, the BVWS Board of Trustees took a bold step and announced a significant reduction in annual tuition rates and a commitment to keep tuition sensible. Robust enrollment growth since 2013 inspired the new tuition model, as the school increased vibrancy, diversity and educational reach. The Sensible Tuition Model benefits families who desire an exceptional private school education for their children and a stable tuition structure to maximize their budgeting for the long term. The 2016/2017 tuition for a middle-school student was approximately 62% of the previous year’s cost.

Today Boulder Valley’s increased enrollment numbers and broader community contributions continue to enable the school to fund capital improvements including biodynamic farming projects, fountains, landscaping, and building upgrades on an expansive 38-acre campus. Investments in experienced, Waldorf-trained faculty and innovative programming for a rigorous, engaging curriculum are ongoing, and include strong academics as well as diverse subject classes such as Spanish, handwork, woodwork, music, and visual arts for children of preschool age through the eighth grade. With a 28-year history in Boulder County educating pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade students, BVWS is proud to have taken this rather unprecedented action of leveling tuition rates to stay around a more affordable rate of about $13,000 per year.  We continue to welcome a diversity of families into our community.
