Back to School 2023-24

back to school

The 2023-2024 school year brings many positive changes including the continued work on the Lower School (LS) addition, a common start time for all students, and 6th grade becoming part of the LS. As always, Bethany will offer students meaningful experiences that will strengthen and challenge them. 


Our cafeteria provides amazing food each day.  Students may income-qualify for free or reduced lunch with additional benefits including curricular material fee waiver and SAT test/AP exam fee reduction. To be considered for these additional benefits, please complete the front and back of the 2023-24 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals form by Friday, July 28. Find the form here.


Families new to Bethany should plan to attend the Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 8, from 6:30-8:00.  There you will have an opportunity to meet staff who will answer questions and explain some procedures unique to our school. We hope this evening will help make the transition to Bethany a fun and positive experience. You are also welcome to call the school with any questions.


Schedules for high school students will be emailed to Bethany email addresses. If you have questions or want to make changes, contact school counselor Krysten Parson at [email protected], or call the office for an appointment. Middle School and Lower School students will receive their schedules on the first day of class.


Please let us know if you have questions. Continue to rest, be safe, and healthy over summer break. See you on Thursday morning, August 10, at 8:30 a.m.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Juanita Hershberger, Lower School Principal at [email protected] or Hank Willems, Upper School Principal at [email protected].
