One of our core values is working toward a world in which quality education is available to everyone, everywhere. We never want families to be put off by price, so we offer financial aid to families who are financially unable to access our programme. This is not a loan; it’s a reduction in tuition obligation. Offering financial aid is one way we work toward our goal of making sure that all children have access to an exceptional education.
What type of financial aid is available?
Based on individual circumstances, we typically offer families a discount of 10%, 30%, or 50% of the full tuition fee. We also can decrease the one-time deposit fee for families that qualify for financial aid. Qualifying for financial aid is based on their household income and expenses. Additionally, we offer sibling discounts, so if you would like to enrol more than one child at bina, you’ll receive a 10% discount for the first sibling and 20% for the second.
What is the full cost of tuition?
The cost of tuition is $825 monthly. If you’re able to commit to a longer period of time, the cost of tuition decreases: if you can pay quarterly, the cost is $2200 (saving you $1100 a year) or if you can pay yearly, the cost is $8000 (saving you $1900 a year). If this full tuition cost is not a possibility for your family, you should absolutely apply for financial aid.
What is included in the tuition fee?
- Daily online live lessons (4 hours a day)
- Micro class sizes (max 6 students)
- Weekly one-on-one teacher meetings
- Experienced educators with postgraduate degrees
- Continual feedback and support from teachers
- A focus on both academic learning and social emotional learning
- Progress reports
