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.

New Family Discount
New families who register by 8/1/18 will receive a $100 tuition discount.
Three or More Children Discount
Families who enroll three or more children in BJEP for the same school year will receive a $100 tuition discount.
Administrative Fee
Families who register after the last day of classes, May 6, 2018 will be assessed a $100 administrative fee.
Second Semester Enrollment
The cost for the second semester of the BJEP school year is $850 for grades 2-7 and $650 for grades K-1. Tuition is due in full at the time of enrollment. Students will not be allowed to attend classes without payment confirmation. 

The BJEP Heartbeat Chesed/Caring Community Fund
We invite each family to contribute at least $18 at the time of registration to The BJEP Heartbeat. Your generosity will directly support our efforts to care for and celebrate one another. 
A non-refundable and non-transferable deposit of $250 per child will reserve a place in the class.
Balance Due
Any tuition balance due to BJEP must be made monthly through Smart Tuition and paid in full by December 31, 2018. Contact Dana Ravech at for information or questions about Smart Tuition.
Tuition Refund Policy
No tuition refunds are granted after the third session of classes. Remaining tuition for students who withdraw mid-year will be allocated to the BJEP Heartbeat, our Chesed/Caring Community Fund.
Parent Cooperative Jobs
Each family is required to sign up for one BJEP parent cooperative job per student registered in order for payment to be accepted. Please use the link to the right to view the job descriptions and sign up for a job. We encourage families to sign up for an extra job or two. We could use the help!
