We welcome your interest in Bethany Christian Schools. Bethany Christian Schools admits qualified students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin. Our goal is to make the admissions process simple and straightforward. Below are the steps in the process and links to required forms.

Step 1: Get to know us

We look forward to learning to know your family, and invite you to learn to know our community. Learn about our academic and extra-curricular programming through our website. Call our admissions director to get more information. Schedule a visit, attend an open house, or come to a prospective student visit day. See scheduled opportunities to visit Bethany.

Step 2: Apply online

Complete an admissions application online

You will be redirected to TADS, Bethany's partner for admissions, enrollment, financial aid, and billing accounts. Note that an application fee of $50 per student or $75 per family when applying together will be needed in order to complete the online application.
