One of the ways BCCS helps families cover tuition cost is through providing scholarships. Currently, we offer approximately forty $500 scholarships, which are available for application every year around mid-May and awarded mid-June. Many scholarships address tuition assistance needs. Others address various situations. Following is a sample list of scholarship criteria:

·         Adopted Child

·         Child with Special Needs

·         More than One Child at BCCS

·         Ongoing Financial Need*

·         Short-term Financial Hardship*

·         Single Parent Family

·         Three or More Children at BCCS

*In order to be eligible for a scholarship with financial need or financial hardship criteria, you must complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment process at the following link.
