I will always cherish the relationships I’ve made at BCS. At this school I’ve met so many amazing people who have impacted my life in so many ways. I often hear people say that the best thing about BCS are the bonds we create here, and I couldn’t agree more with them. Meeting people who come from such different backgrounds has helped me understand and appreciate different cultures.
Fausta Tesolin, BCS'19
Financial Assistance is awarded to families based on their demonstrated financial need. Applications for financial assistance are all reviewed by the BCS Financial Assistance Committee and evaluated based on a family’s needs and the school’s funds. Priority is given to applications from families who meet our financial assistance criteria and whose children demonstrate the greatest potential to contribute to the Bishop's College School mission.
To apply for assistance, families must complete the application form on the website of Apple Financial Services. Apple Financial will analyze applications to determine need prior to consideration by the BCS Financial Assistance Committee. New student applications may be submitted to Apple Financial Services after February 1 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
Amounts awarded depend upon demonstrated need and the BCS Foundation funds available. Every effort is made to distribute financial assistance as broadly and equitably as possible.
Financial assistance may be renewed from year to year and is conditional upon continued, verifiable need, as well as full payment of outstanding accounts. Renewal applications for students currently receiving financial assistance must be completed annually and submitted to Apple Financial Services for review by February 1.
We treat all requests for financial assistance with the highest levels of confidentiality and discretion and all our families are expected to do the same.
Please note: though applications are considered on a rolling basis, admissions decisions for those applying for financial assistance may have varying timelines due to the competitive nature of the program and limited resources. Should you require a decision within a set timeline, please be sure to notify a member of the admissions team. Note that BCS is 'need-aware' when considering applications.
When siblings attend BCS throughout the same school year, a discount representing 10% of tuition will be granted for each additional child of the same family. These discounts are calculated on the balance remaining after deducting any financial assistance amounts.
Please note sibling discounts are considered in any financial assistance offerings.
Please speak to our Admissions team if you would like to know more – we would be happy to walk you through the process!
