BB&N endeavors to grant each student access to exceptional opportunities. All of our students should have equal opportunity to unlock their full potential and thrive in our community guided by honor, scholarship, and kindness. 

Our Financial Aid Philosophy

Roughly a quarter of our students receive need-based aid. Our budget for financial aid grants has doubled to almost $11 million dollars over the past decade, illustrating the school and Board of Trustees’ commitment to strengthening support for access and affordability.

All financial aid at BB&N comes in the form of education grants, not loans, which means monies are not repaid by the family. Grants are awarded to families that qualify after submitting the application on Clarity and all corresponding financial documentation. BB&N is proud to meet the full demonstrated financial need of every student we admit.

Families must apply for financial aid every year in order for BB&N to be most responsive to any changes in a family’s circumstances. Provided this situation does not change significantly, families can expect the same percentage of coverage year on year. BB&N uses information from the Clarity application, supplemental tax documentation, and a deep understanding of each family’s financial situation in order to finalize grant amounts.

Access With a Wide Reach

Any tuition grant covers the full extent of demonstrated financial need. Books and lunch are included in the cost of tuition for all students.
