No, we do not have school uniforms. We do ask all students to wear appropriate athletic shoes on days they have P.E.
For the Upper School, students may be asked by teaching staff to wear specific clothing such as long sleeves and/or closed-toe shoes if a science lab activity requires it for safety.
Our Shadow Program is open to applicants in Grades 6 – 9. For the current school year season, the Shadow Program will launch on September 1.
Please note, that this program is available for applicants only and is on a first come first served basis. Due to this program’s popularity, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be able to attend a Shadow Day.
From their very first day on our campuses, our students see and understand how seriously we take the responsibility of their education and their academic and social-emotional growth. We celebrate hard work and believe that all students can achieve amazing feats when they put their minds to it. Your child and family, along with our school administration, and faculty and staff, are all part of a team that works together to ensure the success and empowerment of each student. The support your student will receive is unmatched; the community that welcomes them to explore and learn is warm, nurturing, spontaneous, and alive with curiosity. Our results are only possible because of our culture of respect and support. Each teacher provides office hours throughout the school week for students, and students can attend our peer tutoring center Monday through Friday, as well.
At this time we do not offer financial aid, however we do offer payment plan options. Families may submit tuition in three different ways: (1) One payment, (2) Two half-payments, or (3) 10 monthly payments.
BASIS Independent does not have resources on campuses for many special needs, and also does not maintain a school psychologist; however, our teachers and administrators have a long and successful record of supporting, challenging and inspiring students who require various learning accommodations.
For questions regarding your student’s specific situation, please contact the Admissions team.
