ACE Scholarship

March 20, 2020 – Over the past several weeks, the ACE Scholarships governing board has been monitoring the unprecedented turmoil caused by COVID-19 and its effects on our state and national economies. Given the economic uncertainty this year, and because serving existing ACE scholars is their number one priority, they are suspending all scholarship allocations to new students for the 2020-21 school year. This decision does NOT affect existing students on an ACE scholarship. BCS and its ACE Scholarship recipients are incredibly grateful for the support of ACE Scholarships, and pray for all affected by the coronavirus crisis.

BCS Foundation Scholarships

Cost of Mission Program

Families who are financially able are invited to participate in the BCS Cost of Mission program. Cost of Mission provides parents the opportunity to bridge the gap between the stated tuition rate and the Cost of Mission. All contributions above the tuition amount will be processed as a charitable tax donation and as such are tax deductible. Parents will be invited to contribute to the Cost of Mission when tuition statements are available in SmartTuition in late June.
