Financial Aid

Our goal is to be the best boarding school in California. We’re committed to doing everything we can to make our unique school’s tuition affordable through financial aid awards. Awards are granted based on a family’s financial needs relative to all others applying for aid. The awards we offer are made possible through the generous support of school alumni, parents, and friends. This year, over $500,000 was awarded to nearly one-fifth of the student population. Click here to learn how to apply and begin the application process.

BHS is a member of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) which assists schools in making financial aid decisions. All financial aid information and awards are kept confidential.
