Our Spring edition of Aun Aprendo is hot off the digital press! Thanks to the many dedicated staff members and alumni for their contributions, and to our students for the great spirit they fill the campus with, each and every day.
An incredible three days hosting a great community of dedicated small boarding school professionals! Very thankful to our entire staff for the team effort that was put forward to make the conference occur seamlessly and smoothly. Thanks to Mother Nature for her perfect weather and wildflowers!
Monday morning we hosted an engaged group of perspective families from all over the world for Open House. Families toured, visited classes, participated in a faculty panel, attended the assembly, and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Our community did a wonderful job of making our guests feel welcome.
Are you interested in applying to BHS? If so, it is probably one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. The application to Besant Hill School contains the general application, parent and student questionnaires, transcript request, student essay and three teacher recommendations. Your application will be read by each member of the Admissions Committee, who will then reach a decision about your acceptance to the school.
Although a demonstrated responsibility for learning is the most important criterion, the committee also looks for qualities of character and maturity, as well as the ability and willingness to contribute to the life of the school community. Differences in background, circumstance and educational opportunity are also valued and weigh in our decisions. Above all, we strive to bring a well-rounded, interesting and diverse group of creative students to BHS. These students should be eager to take advantage of the many opportunities the school has to offer.
Please contact us at any time, and we will do our best to make sure that applying to BHS is a positive experience.
