Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and Fees

Tuition for 2024-2025: $12,050. All tuition payments are made online through our tuition management company, FACTS.  There is an easy process for setting up an agreement for tuition payment.  All families will be required to have a tuition agreement set up in August, 2023, so  they will be ready to go when school starts.  No student will be able to start school until their tuition agreement is set up.

Financial Aid

The goal and practice of Bryn Athyn Church School is to provide financial aid in order to make a distinctive New Church education available to any family that desires it for their children. All families receive some financial support through the operating budget, endowment, and annual fund, as tuition alone does not cover the total cost, estimated to be $14,000 per year, of educating a student at BACS. In addition, the school is budgeting approximately $1,400,000 in tuition assistance for 2024-2025. More than 50% of BACS families receive additional tuition assistance. Grants are need-based, and vary from several hundred to several thousand dollars. In determining tuition assistance each family’s application is considered individually. There are no income floors or ceilings to qualify for tuition assistance. Rather, tuition assistance takes into account multiple factors including home equity, consumer debt, number of children attending tuition-charging institutions and more. It is important for all families to feel free to inquire about and request tuition assistance for any reason. Requests for tuition assistance are kept strictly confidential, as is any information provided.

Deadlines for financial aid

The deadline for submitting a financial aid application is March 1, 2024. Deadline for submitting your supporting documentation is April 1, 2024.   At Bryn Athyn Church School we do not penalize for late applications.  We appreciate applications and documentation that are submitted by the deadline as it makes it easier for you to promptly set up your tuition agreement.  Based on the information you provide to FACTS, they will make a recommendation to the Financial Aid Committee as to your specific needs.  Financial aid awards are distributed on a rolling basis.  All inquiries and applications for financial aid are held in the strictest confidence between FACTS and the Financial Aid Office.  No information is released to any person beyond those staff members directly involved in distributing and accounting for financial aid.

Process for applying for financial aid

We use a tuition management company called FACTS for application for financial aid. All families need to re-apply every year for financial aid.
