Discounts and Financial Aid
Discounts and Financial Aid

Option 1: Multiple child discount
Families with 2 or more enrolled students will receive a 9% tuition discount for the second and subsequent children.  Discounts will apply to the child(ren) in the lowest grades.

Option 2: Payment in full discount
$100 off the annual tuition per student if paid in full before June 1.

Families with a VPK enrolled child are not eligible for additional discounts.

Option 3:  Financial Aid
Limited funds are available for annual tuition assistance.  BSA utilizes FAST, a company that provides confidential and objective third party evaluation of financial needs. 

FAST is available to families who have enrolled their students at BSA.  Typically a family whose income is over $45,000 would not qualify, however by documenting extenuating financial circumstances, a family could become eligible to receive financial assistance.  The enrollment fee however is non-refundable even if your financial aid is not approved. 

Please contact the BSBA administrative offices once you have applied for assistance.  You may begin the FAST financial aid application process beginning January 15.   There is a $45 application fee due at the completion of the online financial aid application.   Financial Aid applications must be submitted to FAST by April 15 and tax returns post- dated not later than April 20th. These are firm deadlines. 

Full time Bell Shoals Church and BSA staff members are eligible to receive a staff discount.  For more information please contact the BSBA administrative offices.

We do not accept McKay, Step Up for Students or other scholarship.


Once a child is registered and paid the deposit they are considered enrolled for the entire school year.  If the child is withdrawn after the first day of school, 15% of the total tuition per child  must be paid to BSA.  Once the child's account has been cleared by the finance department, all grades, test scores, report cards, transcripts and cumulative records will be released to the parents or new school. 

If a student is withdrawn from BSA due to financial delinquency; all grades, test scores, report cards, transcripts and cumulative records will be held until the account has been paid and cleared by the finance department.

If a delinquency occurs at year-end, the student will not be allowed to re-enroll for the following school year and records will not be transferred to a new school.
