To submit an application after January 20, 2018, you must also complete a wait-list form, which can be found here. Please refer to the following for information regarding the admission process. A decision will be made once your son's file is complete.

BWS and the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program:

BWS is a proud participant in the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program. The program provides scholarship vouchers to DC residents who meet specific income requirements. All elligible families must apply prior to submitting their BWS application.

Because students who are already attending private schools are not eligible to enroll in the program, BWS encourages all applicants to apply for the DC Opportunity Scholarship before enrolling at BWS.
