Hear from School Director Kelly Church

DWS is committed to doing what we can to support families who believe they may no longer be able to afford a Waldorf education due to a change in their financial situation. Our new Stand Together Assistance Relief (STAR) Fund offers one-time need-based financial relief for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Offering the STAR Fund is done with a sense of deep commitment to our families and community. DWS offers more than an education. The school offers a partnership for home life, a journey of soulful discovery and a lens through which we view this world. Together, as a community, we prepare our high school seniors to graduate confident and adaptable ready to thrive in our complex world.

We believe now more than ever is the time for us to stand strong and stand together so we can continue serving all our families as a healing and stabilizing force in this world.


Through the overwhelming generosity of our school community, the STAR Fund is helping close to 30 families stay in the school.  Here is what our applicant families are saying:

“I really appreciate all you are doing to help this community. I wish there was a way to repay you all for your hard work and dedication. I give every ounce of my energy to my kids and I’m sure you are all doing the same at home. I can’t imagine also being responsible for the livelihoods of so many more. Thank you for the way you all give yourself to this community. I admire you all.”

 “Thank you to all of the donors for proactively offering this as a temporary solution to such an unfortunate circumstance. Our family will be forever grateful and I am sure my sentiments are shared by many families. Your generosity is appreciated.”

“I am so grateful that the STAR Fund may be available to families that need assistance. I really do not know how I would make school happen without the fund.”

“DWS is an amazing and immersive school where our daughter thrives. It would be devastating and painful for her to have to leave her school now.”

“STAR funds would be amazingly helpful for our son for the upcoming school year. I am extremely grateful for our DWS community – I don’t see him at any other school. I will do anything to ensure that he continues attending DWS and this funding would be very helpful while we work to recoup from setbacks caused by this difficult time.”

“With additional help from the STAR fund, along with TADS & scholarships, my sons will be able to attend Waldorf for the 20/21 school year. Both sons say DWS is their first choice!”

Limited enrollment and big campus.

DWS is planning for on-campus learning for fall 2020.

Our distance learning program has earned praise from parents.

Our caring and connected community provides stability and nurturance during this stressful time.

Teachers begin each school year knowing their students’ strengths and areas of growth.

An arts-instilled education is inherently healing.

Looking Forward

As we plan the future, DWS is doing everything possible to emerge from these times more efficient, effective, and resilient. By standing together we can become stronger.
