Tuition & Fees

BGA's tuition for 2019-2020, including fees, is: $19,240 for the Lower School; $23,790 for the Middle School; and $24,620 for the Upper School.

In an effort to simplify and streamline the billing process for next year, BGA has combined the ancillary fees into one tuition assessment. The absorbed fees include, but are not limited to, the meal plan (excluding Lower School), consumables, field trips and a technology fee. Additional billable items include specific individual fees such as extracurricular activities and class trips*. In addition to 3-4 optional charges* depending on grade level, parents of 5th-12th grade students are responsible for purchasing all textbooks and apps. Parents of students in grades 5-12 are also responsible for providing an iPad for their student.
