RE-ENROLLMENT OFFER Ends Sunday
We are making a special offer for those few students, who have not yet re-enrolled for next year. We will only raise the re-enrollment fee by $50 until the end of March. That means you will pay $249 instead of $550 if you enroll by the end of this month. This is a savings of $301. You can enroll online via our website at www.bchs.net/reenroll/.
The tuition, tech fee, and most other fees will not increase for next year, but you will receive the same quality education you’ve come to expect from BC at our new location. You will receive a 2% discount on tuition for next year, if you pay in full by April 15th.
Transportation Next Year
We do not have enough students requesting bus service for next year to make it cost effective. However, we are creating a carpool system that will help those of you still requiring transportation services. Another option we have been exploring is to partner with the student-driving service, Hop Skip Drive, which is a sedan service that transports groups of children to and from schools.
Thank you so much for your support as we work together to arrive at the best way to accommodate everyone's transportation needs. We'll be working with the PFC to create a carpool sign-up sheet for parents and to request volunteer drivers. Please contact Shawn Thomas, our Admissions Director at email@example.com if you have any questions, since he will be working with the PFC and our parents to ensure every student has transportation next year.
Message From Gina Hanson
During my first year here at Brethren Christian, I have felt God’s presence constantly among the students and staff. I have been impressed with a focus and balance of teaching students to follow Christ while also providing quality instruction. I believe God has protected this school, because He has plans for it to become even stronger and a bigger influence in the community. I am excited to see what God has in store for Brethren Christian School - a place where teachers care so much for the whole student. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this school, and I look forward to next year with excitement.
Books Without Boarders Club
Two of our students, Nikki He and Jason Tran, have started this club to promote literacy in China.
Please donate any books written in English that are appropriate for grades K-12 to the front office by April 21st. These books will go to Tongdian Middle School in a small village in China that has trouble affording such books. Please sign your name in the books you donate as a personal touch. Thank you!!!
