Affording a Bradford Christian Academy Education
As they’re considering school options, so many families approach the cost of private education with one of these strong assumptions:
If this is the tuition, then we can’t afford this school because we don’t earn enough.
We shouldn’t even bother asking about tuition assistance because I’m sure we earn too much to qualify .
In reality, many families with low and high incomes — and all kinds of income levels in between — do qualify for tuition assistance. Variable tuition is a means of helping as many families as possible afford the best education they can get for their children. The variable tuition system we use at Bradford Christian Academy provides a clear, impartial, and transparent process for determining your eligibility.
Our variable tuition application is simple to complete, and it will equip us to tell you exactly what your tuition will be. After applying for variable tuition, many parents discover Bradford Christian Academy is affordable. Start your application now.

Included in Tuition

You want your kids to love where they go to school, to be around good people, to come home happy, to enjoy the work they’re doing. With my sons’ experience at BCA, it makes everything joyful and it puts a positive spin on everything we do as a family. It’s not just a place to learn math, science, or English — the teachers feel it is their calling to make sure these kids are not only educated, but growing up to be good people.”
