Sibling Discount Program

At Balboa School, the Sibling Discount Program is our way of saying thank you for your trust and confidence in our school, not only for your first child’s education but all of your children’s education. Balboa School understands that tuition for a family of multiple children can be difficult to afford and Balboa School wants to make it easier for your family by offering a discount.

Eligibility criteria:

The oldest child will pay full price. All younger children are 20% off original tuition. No other coupons can be applied to any the children qualifying for sibling discount, except financial aid. Friends & Family Referral program will not apply to your children, but can be used if you refer other families to Balboa School. When the oldest child graduates, the next oldest child will become full price, and any younger siblings will continue to be 20% off. Any family with multiple children of the same age, to include but not limited to twins, triplets, etc. will still pay full tuition on one child and will receive the 20% off the remaining children.

If tuition is paid in full, by the discounted date parents are still eligible for the early pay discount of 10%. Early pay discount for new students is 14 days after enrollment but no later than 1st day of school. Early pay discount for returning students is March. Ex: child is enrolled in 2019/2020 school year, then early pay discount for 2020/2021 is March 1st of 2020. If tuition is paid on a monthly payment plan, finance charges are assessed at the full tuition rate not the discounted rate.

Financial aid can be combined with the discount program to offer the best rates possible rate for your children. All inquiries about financial aid and the discount program can be directed to Accounting:
