Financial Aid & Scholarships

Blue Mountain Academy is able to offer a limited number of financial aid programs. Occasionally students find sponsors, often from their home churches, who are willing to help on a regular basis. Through the work-study program, our industry provides outside revenue for the academy. As much as possible, the work coordinator will assign students on financial aid industry jobs.

The following programs are available for students requiring financial assistance:

Matching Grants

Many Pennsylvania Conference churches participate with Blue Mountain Academy in a matching grant plan which provides funding for constituent students who need financial assistance. Matching grants are also available for other churches and certain conferences. A student accepted on any of these programs is expected to meet and maintain average or above average grades in scholarship, work, and citizenship. Participants must be willing to work in an industry job as assigned by the work coordinator. Contact the Blue Mountain Academy Business Office or your local pastor for application and availability in your area.
Note: No matching grant offers full coverage for tuition, room and cafeteria. The parent or guardian is responsible for the balance due each month.

Summer Youth Scholarship

Blue Mountain Academy participates in the scholarship plan for students who work at Adventist summer camps and youth evangelism initiatives. Anyone desiring additional information should contact his/her conference youth department.

Student Earnings

In keeping with Blue Mountain Academy’s philosophy, all students are required to be part of the vocation education program. Scholarships are given out based on vocation grade, hours of training, merit, and performance. Rotations are required for various levels/departments. This opportunity allows for students to gain a vast knowledge of how to adapt and more importantly excel in the workplace.

The Bible emphasizes in Proverbs 13:4: “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.”

The Assist Program, Summer Program, and portions of our campus industry are hourly positions. It is required that students’ earnings & vocation scholarships be applied to their school bill each month.  For more information on BMA’s vocation program, please contact Aaron Weber at

Summer Work on Campus

Industry jobs and a small number of on-campus positions are available during the summer months. See details on Summer Vocational Education Opportunities page.
