Core Values

Academic Excellence

Through a holistic educational experience, students develop morally grounded thinking and a desire for life-long learning.


The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out. Proverbs 18:15


Through dynamic, creative, and hands-on education, Bethany meets the needs of diverse learners and empowers all students meet high academic standards. Bethany provides challenging experiential learning at all levels, including advanced courses in all core subject areas and the fine arts as well as a unique, week-long immersive Interterm. In addition, Bethany has received national recognition for our innovative Environmental Science course. Bethany now also offers a variety of technology education classes with a lab of 3-D printers. 



classFaith that Lives

Christ calls us to discipleship, peaceable living, and service.


...act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.  Micah 6:8

Fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12:2


Our teachers, coaches, administrators and staff model Christ's love to students as students explore Christ's call on their lives, seeking a faith they can own. As we nurture the spiritual, academic, artistic, and social gifts of all students and unleash these gifts to participate in God's work in the world, teachers and coaches mentor students to cultivate leadership skills. As a small school Bethany gives students opportunities to develop their skills and interests in multiple areas simultaneously.

Rooted in Community

Modeling God’s love, we respect our differences, build compassionate relationships and practice reconciliation.


Everyday they broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of the people. Acts 2:46-47


A close community with strong teacher-student relationships has long been a Bethany distinctive. The underlying goal is to support each student’s learning and growth as a whole person in tandem with the rigorous academic programming. At Bethany, students are known and loved, and build lasting friendships that provide a sense of belonging.
