From Heather Stewart, Director of Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Waldorf High School of Massachusetts Bay. Waldorf High School is a community of learners that fosters the growth of the total student through a challenging curriculum.


I know that the high school selection process can be demanding, however, at Waldorf High School we strive to make the process as seamless as possible for our prospective families. ​

We begin accepting applications in the fall for the following school year and continue accepting applications on a rolling admissions basis throughout the year. Our priority deadline for the 2021-22 school year is February 1st, 2021. Applications received after this deadline are considered on a rolling basis if space is available.

We do not have an application fee, and we do not require standardized testing as part of the application process. When your application is complete, you may expect to receive a decision within 2-4 weeks or by April 1st.

Our small and nurturing environment also makes mid-year transitions possible, so please get in touch with us if you are interested in transferring to WHS for the current school year.

  • Inquire about applying 
    If you are considering applying, we would love to get to know you! Please call 617-489-6600 or submit an inquiry form to get in touch with our admissions team.

  • Get to know us 
    The best way to get a sense of our school is to see it first hand. Although we are not currently offering tours during school hours due (as a pandemic safety measure), we welcome any interested students and families to take a socially-distanced tour of our building after hours, and as part of the application process we invite prospective families to connect with our warmly welcoming school community through phone or video chats with current families and faculty members. Learn more about visiting here.

  • Application process 
    You can apply online or use our paper forms.  We aim for the application to give students and families a variety of opportunities to tell us about themselves so we can understand each prospective student as a whole person. Once your application is submitted, we will be in touch to arrange (virtual) meetings with current faculty members and students.

  • Tailored Tuition
    We recognize that private school tuition is a significant financial commitment, and keeping our exceptional education accessible to families of all income levels is a fundamental value of our school.  Our Tailored Tuition program customizes tuition to be affordable for all families. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time to answer your questions and address any concerns you might have. You may contact me either by phone, 617-489-6600, or by email at I look forward to hearing from you!
