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. The average amount of financial aid awards is approximately 30- 40% of tuition. For your financial aid application to be considered, the enrollment process must be completed.  Financial aid must be applied for each year. 

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.

Financial aid applications are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year. You may access the application portal by clicking herehttps://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3CMGP
The financial aid application deadline for the 2018-2019 school year is January 31, 2018.  No late applications will be 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.


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 Information – We will provide you with a digital admissions packet that provides more detailed information about our programs. You may request information 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.

3. Apply for Admission – Parents begin this process after they have completed a tour of the school. The process is all done online. Step by step instructions will be provided. Parents will pay the $75 application fee in this step. To begin the application for admission please click here.
