Financial Assistance & Scholarships

Financial Assistance

Admissions decisions are based on admissions criteria, regardless of financial need. Financial assistance awards are based on financial need, which is evaluated through an independent third party, Apple Financial Services. To be eligible for financial assistance, you need to complete the Apple Financial application before January 6, 2025 Apple Financial reviews all applications and makes an award recommendation to the school. All financial assistance decisions are communicated to families on offer day, February 21, 2025. The amount of financial assistance awarded will be applied as a reduction of tuition fees.

At BSS, students are encouraged to engage in the community by taking advantage of the experiences offered. We understand that these opportunities have costs beyond tuition. Knowing this, students are eligible to apply for assistance to offset the cost of BSS Summer Academy courses and one out-of-province or international trip during their time at the school.
