It is central to the vision of Tamarack that Waldorf Education be made available to all those who recognize its value. Our goal is to create a diverse community that includes families with a wide variety of financial capacities, while remaining responsible to our economic obligations. For families who do not qualify for the Choice Program, tuition assistance may be available. To be considered for tuition assistance, you must submit an application to the school’s Tuition Assistance Committee. The committee will make recommendations for tuition agreements that reflect the human and organizational realities of our community.

Milwaukee Parental Choice Program
Tamarack participates in the Milwaukee Parental Choice (Voucher) Program. For the 2017-18 academic year, a family residing in the city of Milwaukee will be eligible for the program if, in the case of a family of four, its 2015 adjusted gross income is less than $73,401. If your family will be participating in Choice, your application needs to be received during an Open Enrollment Period, usually the 1st through the 20th of each month, beginning in March for the following fall. The Enrollment Coordinator will supply that information. New Choice students must submit income documentation (a copy of 2016 federal tax forms) and Milwaukee residency documentation (typically a utility bill) along with the Choice application form. It is recommended that new parents come to the Tamarack office so that staff can review the documents with parents present to make sure all information is complete and accurate.
Applications for Pre-K classrooms must be for children who are 3 years old before June 1.
Applications for the Kindergartens must be for children who are 4 years old by June 1.
