Fees & Financial Aid

EXPLANATION OF FEES

We are a small, non-profit corporation totally dependent on tuition, fees and fundraising to meet all our expenses. In order to meet our budgetary goals, and for your convenience, we have expanded our fee schedule to include prepayment.

Morning tuition is billed in advance annually, semi-annually or monthly. Charges for lunch or for after school programs are billed in advance monthly, except for September, which is billed for the following month. Bills are rendered on the first of each month and due by the fifteenth (15th). Those accounts not paid by the fifteenth (15th) of the month will be charged a late fee of $25.  In April, families returning to BHNS the following academic year will be billed for May and September, thereby securing their child(ren)'s class placement the subsequent fall. As mentioned previously, the September payment reflects a non-refundable deposit to secure your child's place in the program. Annual payments should be made by September 15th; semi-annual payments by September 15th and February 15th. Returned checks will be charged a fee of $25.

If you child is enrolled in our Lunch or After School programs, you have an obligation to pay even if your child is absent. If your child will be absent two (2) weeks or longer, and if written notice is given at least one (1) week in advance, you will not be responsible for Lunch or After School fees. Returned checks will be charged a fee of $25.

Late pickup charge is $25 per fifteen (15) minute block. Charge begins fifteen (15) minutes beyond pickup time.
