FINANCIAL AID FAQS
What is the priority given to allocating financial aid awards?
BHMS allocates financial aid systematically: first to returning families currently receiving financial aid, then to current families who experience a change in economic circumstances and thirdly, to families applying to the School.
When should I apply and what is the Financial Aid Application deadline?
Apply in October and November, the year prior to the school year in which you plan to enroll or re-enroll. The deadline is December 1.
Who needs to apply?
Both custodial parents/guardians and non-custodial parents/guardians must complete a Financial Aid Application and follow the same procedures, regardless of marital status and financial arrangements dictated by legal settlements. A parent/guardian’s refusal to comply will jeopardize a student’s ability to receive aid.
