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.
