Ready to apply? We’re ready too!

We are still accepting applications for admission for the 2021 – 2022 school year. You are welcome to email us at to inquire about space availability. Even if we have reached capacity for the grade level(s) you are interested in, you may still apply and your child will be considered for any vacancy that may occur.

To begin your child’s application, please create an account (step 1 below). A username and password will be emailed to you which will allow you to log in to your child’s Admission Portal (step 2 below). If you need assistance with your username or application, please email us at, and we will gladly assist you.

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 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.
