Thank You for Giving!

On Monday, Ibu Gledya and Pak Fajar spent a couple hours traveling to Cianjur to drop off the aid that our community was able to generously give. They met with the Department of Education and in the end we were able to provide over 80 boxes of food, 10 packs of tarps, and several boxes of other needed supplies. Thank you for your generosity!

From BAIS Finance Office

Dear Parents,

First, I want to take this opportunity to remind you that the second semester payment is due on or before Friday, January 13, 2023.

Second, if you have not already done so, please complete this re-enrollment form and return it with appropriate fees to the BAIS office on or before Friday, January 27, 2024. Your child’s re-enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year is secure when this form and the accompanying payment are received. Payment can be made by bank transfer or cash to the finance office.

Please note after January 27, 2023, your child’s seat in class is no longer guaranteed. The 10,000,000 IDR non-refundable re-enrollment deposit will be applied towards the student’s fall 2023 tuition. After January 27, 2023, 7,000,000 IDR of the 10,000,000 IDR deposit will be applied towards the student’s fall 2023 tuition.

For both payments you could do a bank transfer, and please pay directly to the BAIS bank account with full detailed information regarding the student’s name and grade in the information section of the bank form.  The school requires that all payments be received in full into the school’s bank account before the first day of school.  The bank account information is as follows:
