Tuition Assistance

Like you, we believe in the value of a Catholic education, and recognize the commitment required to send your child(ren) to Bethlehem Academy. We work hard to make this education accessible to all our families and we are committed to doing all that we can to make a BA education affordable. To do that, we partner with TADS in the financial aid application process. Doing so provides us with the ability to fairly assess need and make objective aid allocations based on our available resources. One of the important questions asked on the TADS application relates to family size and number of students enrolled in a tuition-based school, factors which are taken into consideration through the TADS process. We encourage any current or prospective Bethlehem Academy family concerned about affording full tuition and fees to apply for tuition assistance through TADS.

Applications for 2020-2021 financial assistance are due to TADS February 17, 2020Applications received after the financial aid deadline are placed on a deferred list. The allocation of post-deadline aid is based upon need and the remaining resources. Award notifications and tuition agreements will be sent to enrolled families in May. We work with all our prospective and returning families applying after the deadline to make our education accessible. Please contact us at or 507-334-3948 if you have questions.
