Admission Steps

We'll walk you through every step of the process — it's as easy as 1-2-3.

Our application and admissions process is designed to give us an opportunity to get to know your student and for you to determine whether BCA is the right school.  This is a very personalized process and varies slightly, depending on the age of your student.  Decision letters will be mailed out through a rolling admissions process (once your application is complete and has been reviewed by the Admissions Team).  

Due to the generous support of donors, we do not charge an application fee for any family considering a BCA education.

Affording a BCA Education

Considering a BCA education but not sure if you can afford it?

Affording a BCA Education

Thank you for considering a BCA education for your child! Selecting a school is a big decision, and a college-preparatory private education represents a significant investment in your child. It may well be within your family’s reach, though!

Students from a wide variety of economic backgrounds experience a transformative BCA education, thanks to our remarkably robust program of tuition assistance. In fact, over half our students are supported in part by BCA tuition assistance.  We can provide a customized tuition package based on various financial factors. If you qualify for tuition assistance, we make every effort to maintain your award each year, as long as your demonstrated need remains the same.

Convenient Payment Options

After an initial setup, tuition payments are made automatically on an annual, semi-annual, or monthly basis through our online tuition management system, FACTS.  Monthly payments are made from July through June (12 payments).

Scholarships & Financial Aid

During the 2022/2023 school year, BCA gave away more than $350,000 in tuition support. Approximately 50% of our students receive scholarships and financial aid to reduce the cost of their tuition.  Tuition support is available from a variety of sources, including church subsidies and the Rhode Island Corporate Tax Credit Program.

BCA uses FACTS as an independent party to evaluate financial need on a consistent basis across all families.
