FIRST-EVER BJEP Referral Program!
We rely on word of mouth! If you refer a family to BJEP and they register one student who attends at least the first 3 sessions, we will give you $250 off of your child’s tuition; if they register two children, or you refer two families who each register a child, we will give you $500 off of your child’s tuition, and so on. With this program, bringing one new student to BJEP automatically reverts your student’s tuition back to this year’s rate! We are determined to grow our school community while continuing to make BJEP as affordable as possible for our families, and we hope that this new program reflects our strong commitment to this goal.
