A legitimate concern for parents considering independent education is the cost of tuition. We understand the sacrifices that many of our families make to send their children to our school. For this reason, we strive to maintain balance between a quality academic program, and keeping tuition affordable for our families.
Brainerd Baptist School offers need-based financial aid for students in K5 through 5th grade on a yearly basis. Approximately 15% of our families are awarded financial aid each April. The average amount of financial aid awards is approximately 40% of tuition. For your financial aid application to be considered, a signed enrollment contract needs to be on file in the school office.
Students who receive financial aid are expected to maintain academic and behavior guidelines. Brainerd Baptist School uses a company called FACTS to verify all submitted financial information. All applicants are required to apply online through FACTS each year.
The financial aid application deadline for the 2017-2018 was February 28th, 2017. No additional applications are being accepted.
Brainerd Baptist School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid awards, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
THE ADMISSIONS PROCESS
We understand that finding the right school can turn into an overwhelming experience! Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible. Below you will see how the admission process at Brainerd Baptist School works. If you have any questions about the school or about the process, please feel free to contact us either by email or by calling 423-622-3873.
1. Request a Packet – This will have general information about the school. You may complete this step by clicking the link at the top of any page on this website, or by clicking here.
2. Tour the School – This is the most important step in the process. You will take a tour of our campus, meet with our Head of School who will share our philosophy of education and see what makes our school so special. Tours typically take about 1 hour. For families entering K3, K4, or K5 we prefer to do the tour in the morning hours so you can see the students in the classroom environment. We also recommend that children not attend the tour as we have a special time planned for them when they come to complete the screening process or on their shadow day (students entering 2nd-5th grades). Call (423-622-3873) or email to schedule.
