Admissions & Enrollment

At Camellia Waldorf School, we believe education transforms lives. That’s why we invite you to review the information below and start the admissions process with us today. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Tuition Assistance

As an independent school, we rely on tuition income and philanthropic support to meet our annual expenses. We work to keep expenses as low as possible while maintaining the quality of our educational program. We are committed to building a school whose student body reflects the ethnic, cultural and socio-economic diversity of Sacramento, and we seek families who are committed to Waldorf education for their children.

  • Currently, 41% of students receive Tuition Assistance grant.

  • Tuition Assistance grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis, depending on individual family circumstances.

  • Students from kindergarten to 8th grade are eligible to apply. Preschool children are also eligible if they have an older sibling in the school.

Admissions Process

The admissions process for new students is:

  1. Call (916) 427-5022 or email to schedule a private tour

  2. Parents complete and submit an online application, for the appropriate grade level.
    You will need to create an account with TADS, who manages all of our enrollment processes.

  3. Submit a non-refundable application fee of $75 through TADS.

  4. The school contacts the family to schedule an interview/assessment with the child and parent(s).

  5. If the student is applying for grades 2 through 8, s/he visits the classroom for 3–5 days.

  6. The school notifies the family of the acceptance decision.

How to Re-Enroll

To keep the re-enrollment process simple, our families are automatically re-enrolled for the following year unless they notify the school that they will not be returning. The $325 re-enrollment fee is billed through the TADS statement, with payment due March 15.

The TADS Tuition Assistance Program Deadline is February 15.


Returning Camellia families can find their re-enrollment forms through our TADS parent portal. Log in to the parent portal.
