We want to support your student’s future success.

It can be tough to start thinking about education after high school while your student is still young. Knowing how to get started saving and actually doing it can be the hardest part. Promise Indiana Baugo is here to help.

If you start a CollegeChoice 529 account for your student, Baugo Community Schools will deposit the first $25 to kick-start your savings. Students can also earn a match from the community when they raise money for their future education. If they receive $25 in deposits, we’ll add another $75. At school, students will discover college and careers in the classroom and explore Bethel University for a campus experience.
