Bethany integrates faith development with academic excellence, urging students to seek a faith they can own. Grounded in Anabaptist-Mennonite values, Bethany weaves Christian teachings into the entire curriculum and nurtures faith development seamlessly throughout the Bethany experience—in class, on the court or stage, through one-to-one mentoring, and in chapels. Systematic biblical instruction takes place in Bible courses required at each grade level. See Bible course descriptions.
