Financial Aid

BB&N is proud of its long history of helping families make an independent school education possible for their children. Through our policies and practices our goal is to try to enroll talented and motivated students regardless of their family’s ability to afford a BB&N education.

Fundamentally, financial aid enriches the experience of every single member of the BB&N community. Financial aid allows us to create a community of learners from many different backgrounds, who will test each other’s assumptions, cultivate each other’s strengths, and open each other's remarkable young minds.

Nearly a quarter of our students receive need-based aid, which places us above the average for schools that are members of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). And we are continually working to increase our financial aid resources.

When applying for financial aid, please be sure to complete all forms and meet all deadlines. For more information about Financial Aid at BB&N, please see the detailed FAQ below.
