Our online application for admission for the 2024 – 2025 school year is available now.

If you have questions along the way, please reach out to us; we are happy to help you and look forward to becoming acquainted with your family in the days ahead!

If your child was in our candidate pool last year because we did not have space availability for him or her, you are welcome to re-apply for the 2024 – 2025 school year.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance enables The Bear Creek School to enroll mission-fit students who would not otherwise have access to an independent school education because of financial constraints. Our tuition assistance program assists families with domestic students in grades K – 12. Please note, applying for admission to Bear Creek and applying for tuition assistance are two separate processes. The tuition assistance application must be submitted at the same time you submit your child’s application for admission. See Tuition Assistance, Scholarships, and Grants for the link to the Financial Aid Application, deadlines, and other important information. You are welcome to email with tuition assistance related questions.
