Exchange students spend a maximum of 8-10 weeks at TWS and their exchange partner spends an equal amount of time at the exchange student’s school. No tuition fees are charged.
Boarding students spend either a full semester (Sept-Dec or Jan-Jun) or a full year (Sept-Jun) at TWS and pay tuition fees as well as boarding fees to their host families. The students may study for one or more semesters at TWS (5-10 months or more).
All students’ English level will be evaluated upon arrival. Students may be placed in the ESL course for international students.
If you studied at a Waldorf school a short time ago but left to attend another school, we will consider your application.
You provide information about yourself, your community and family in your application and questionnaire. We consider this information along with knowledge about potential participants from TWS, and recommend a match.
We also recommend that students find each other on wal-di.com.
After that you and your partner have an opportunity to connect via email and telephone to get to know each other. In the end, you decide if the person will be a good match for you.
Those who benefit the most from this opportunity come to TWS with an open mind, and the will to speak English as much as possible, even when they know it is not perfect.
The most successful students take full advantage of speaking English at all times.
