Hallways of Hope Scholarship

It's our third year offering the unique Hallways of Hope Scholarship Program and we're excited about making it possible for some new families to join our BCS community who would be otherwise unable to do so. The scholarship is for newly­ enrolling families with significant financial need who are suggested by a current member of the BCS community. You'll receive a flyer about this special program today or tomorrow, via your student.

Refer a Friend

Don't forget about our referral discounts! Do you have a friend who's still on the fence about their family's schooling decision for next year? Please invite him or her to contact the school office for an educational consultation. If you refer a friend, neighbor, coworker, or anyone else you know, and they enroll, you will get a discount on your tuition, and so will the new family. Refer-a-Friend post cards will be sent home this week. Give one to someone you know!
