Tuition & Financial Aid

Value of a BT Education

We prepare students for college and life by challenging them to be critical thinkers who engage in discussion, rigorous study, and examination of the world around them. We take pride in the fact that there is no BT "type"; our students are diverse in backgrounds, talents, and interests.

Research and surveys from the Higher Education Research Institute, the Council for American Private Education, and the National Association of Independent schools show that students who graduate from independent schools feel they are better able to adjust to and overcome the academic and social challenges they face in college in comparison to their public school counterparts. Additionally, independent school students are also more likely to achieve post-collegiate employment and gain admittance into post-graduate programs.
