Don't Let Cost be a Barrier

Tuition Reduction Options (TROs)

Parents can carry out certain tasks for which BNS offers a reduction in tuition of $60 per month. The details of the different TROs available are described in the TRO Program guidelines.


Some examples are:

  • lunch duty one day a week

  • sunshine duty (monitoring the children before school begins)

  • cleaning the classrooms, bathrooms, or kitchen

  • building maintenance

  • serving as an officer of the corporation


These jobs provide parents with the opportunity not only to participate in their children's school, but also to reduce the cost of tuition. Every family is guaranteed one TRO per child enrolled, although taking advantage of this opportunity is optional. Families may take on additional TROs, if they are available.

Parents can also apply for tuition assistance. The Blacksburg New School Tuition Assistance Fund is able to provide financial assistance toward tuition to current and incoming families on a financial needs basis. If you would like more information, or to apply for tuition assistance, please email the school at
