Education may be the most important decision you make for your child. Its value extends far beyond the classroom, shaping a child’s experience throughout his or her lifetime. We consider tuition an investment in the future, and also seek to create a school community that is diverse, inclusive, educationally enriching and rewarding for all involved. The Acorn School of Charleston is committed to working with every current and prospective parent to strive to make the gift of an age appropriate education possible.
Open House Events 2019
Our open house events are an opportunity for your child to experience the imaginative nature of our program. Ms. Christi will present a puppet show for families and afterward the adults can chat while the children play. Please join us for “free family fun,” and to learn more about the tradition of Waldorf Education, which inspires our program. The puppet show starts at the school at 10:15, don't be late!
The Application Process
The Acorn School has a rolling enrollment process and we accept new students throughout the year.
1. Attend an open house event or private tour.
2. Parents and student meet with Ms. Christi and Dr. Stevens.
3. Parents complete the application through TADS and pay tuition deposit .
4. Parents complete the Tuition Agreement.
TADS is the service we use to administer school application, enrollment, tuition, financial aid, and billing processes. The service ensures that your online application process will be smooth and secure. We have adopted a Flexible Tuition Option for families; please apply through TADS. Not all families may qualify.
The Acorn School has limited resources for meeting specialized needs. Our staff does not have extensive training in working with children with learning disabilities or emotional or behavioral disorders. In that our resources for supporting special needs are limited that, in turn, limits the range of needs that we can meet and the number of children with special needs we can effectively teach. The Acorn School must insure that efforts to serve particular students do not impose undue hardship on teachers or detract from other students’ opportunities to learn.
If you have any questions about your child's being in our program please feel free to reach out to us. The decision to accept children with special needs is made on a case by case basis.
The Acorn School of Charleston does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, sexual orientation or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions, hiring, scholarship or other school-administered programs.
