Non Discrimination Policy

BHDS admits students of any race or color, any national or ethnic origin, to all the activities and programs of the school and with the rights and privileges of all students.

It does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions, educational, tuition assistance, or employment policies and programs.

Upon the request of an applicant and to the extent reasonably possible, the school will attempt to provide appropriate accommodations in the application and interview process.
