Tuition Student Application and Information

Tuition Application process for 2024-2025 is open

The elementary school will only be taking applications for incoming Kindergarten, 1st grade and 6th grade students for the 2024-2025 school year.  We do not maintain any kind of “waitlist” for  2, 3, 4 and 5th grade applicants. 

The high school will be taking applications for all grade levels (7th grade – 12th grade).

All inquiries concerning the tuition application process should be directed to the Board of Education office, 859.331.3250, or lori.reed@beechwood.kyschools.us.

Tuition Students:   Students whose parents live outside of the school district, but are admitted based on academic performance, attendance and disciplinary data and extracurricular activities.

Tuition costs for 2024-2025 school year: $4,100*.  The tuition rate for students living out of state is $6400.

Tuition Application Process

The following will need to be submitted to the Board of Education Secretary:

  • Application – completed and signed with all required documentation 
  • Letter of Interest stating why you want your child to attend Beechwood and a description of extracurricular activities
  • Academic performance data (both grades and assessment scores i.e. ACT, KSA, MAP, etc.)  
    • Incoming Kindergarten applicants:  We know that as an incoming kindergartener, there will not be academic performance data available.  Please feel free to submit any work product that your child has done at preschool or anything that you feel showcases your child’s academic readiness.  Upon review, an in-person evaluation may be requested as part of the application process.
  • Attendance Data report generated from the child’s school
  • Disciplinary Data – a student expelled from his/her previous school during the last school year need not apply for admission.  A discplinary data report should be generated from the child’s school (even if there are no disciplinary issues).  

Tuition applications may be hand delivered or mailed to Lori Reed, Beechwood Board of Education, 50 Beechwood Road, Ft. Mitchell KY 41017 (applications may be left with either the high school office or the elementary office) or emailed to lori.reed@beechwood.kyschools.us
