There will be some happy families when the November bills arrive next week! They will see the fruit of their labors and receive credits from $500 to $750—just in time for Christmas! “Why are they receiving credits?” you ask.
We recognize that our best recruiters are our parents and students, so we want to encourage you to keep up the good work! Last February, we announced the new referral incentive program. A good number of people took advantage of the program and began talking to their friends about Bob Jones Academy. Thank you! We hope that this program will grow exponentially—that we will see more students that you have recruited and you will benefit from the recruitment incentive.
If you would like some school brochures, you can pick them up at any school office. In addition, referral cards are available at each school office. There is a place on the card where you can write your name before you give the card to a family with whom you have shared your appreciation for the school.
Of course, our website provides details about cost, academics, extracurricular activities, fine arts, and faculty/staff. And there are links to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, which give an inside look at BJA.
Need a refresher on how the program works? Here are the details:
We credit your child’s school bill a one-time $500 award for each new student that enrolls in BJA in the fall and indicates that you are the family who referred them to BJA. If there is more than one new student in the family, we will credit your child’s school bill $750 for the new family. And you can continue to recruit families and receive credits up to the entire amount of your child(ren)’s BJA tuition liability (does not include other fees).
How do we know whom to credit? There is a question on the BJA application for admission form that asks, “Who, if anyone, referred you to BJA?” When the new family applies for admission, they can indicate that you referred them to the school. Based on their indication and as long as the eligibility guidelines are met, we will credit your November school statement with the appropriate amount. We hope this will be an encouragement to you as you continue to tell others about the value of Christian education at Bob Jones Academy.
Here are some additional guidelines:
- Recruit new families with one or more K3–12 full-time or part-time students.
- The family must indicate your name on the application as the person who referred them to BJA.
- The student must apply, be accepted, and enroll in BJA for the upcoming academic year (or semester).
- The student must continue to be enrolled at the time the credit is awarded.
- First semester credits will appear on the November school statement. Second semester credits will appear on the March school statement.
- BJU/BJA employees are not eligible to be recruited.
