Battle Ground Academy is hosting admissions events for its Lower, Middle and Upper Schools the week of Oct. 21.

On Tuesday, Oct. 23, the school is offering an information session open to the community on “Choosing the Right School and Affording It.” BGA’s admission and financial teams will provide an overview of the cost of an independent school education, the financial aid process, use of 529 plans and planning for college.

“We often hear from parents that they would love to send their child to an independent school but don’t think they can afford it,” said Robin Goertz, Director of Enrollment Management. “In reality, there are many ways to work through the financial process to find affordable solutions. Our session is not just for families interested in BGA. It is applicable for anyone who believes an independent school might be right for their child.”

Additionally, BGA is hosting open house events for its Lower School and for its Middle/Upper Schools:
