Bethany provides an education with learning that lasts and faith that lives. Discover the difference!

Christian Faith

Teachers are at the heart of a Christ-centered school. For them, teaching is not just a job, but a calling. Our teachers, coaches, administrators, and staff model Christ's love to students and incorporate the teachings of Jesus into the classroom, athletics, and daily work. Students explore Christ's call on their lives, seeking a faith they can own. Bethany works in partnership with church and home to nurture youth in Christian faith, provides students with Christian adult mentors other than their parents, and plans activities to help student develop many friendships.
