Application Checklist

Step 1: Schedule your tour

  • Please contact our Enrollment Director  at 520.529.1032 #100 for a brief conversation and to schedule your private or group tour (Visitor Morning Tour).

Step 2: Attend a tour

  • Attend a Visitor Morning Tour. After your Tour, you are invited to apply. All Tours are by appointment only.  Infants are welcome to accompany parents to Visitor Morning Tours, and we ask that all parents make childcare arrangements for toddlers and older children when they come for Tours. The admission process offers opportunities for your child to visit the school once you have applied.

Step 3: Apply online

  • Follow the application link to TADS (an online and secure tuition and admissions management site) at http://mytads.com/a/TucsonWaldorf to begin your application.
    IMPORTANT: We’re here to help. For assistance with this process at any time, contact Enrollment Director, Rebecca Briamonte at 520.529.1032 #100 or send e-mail to enrollment@tucsonwaldorf.org.

Step 4: Class visit

  • Once you have completed your application through TADS, you will be contacted to schedule your child’s visit to the classroom during the school day (usually during outdoor play time). The visit is an opportunity to assess whether your child’s needs will be met by our program. You will be contacted soon after your visit to discuss the faculty’s admission recommendation.
