As a small school, Bethany places priority on relationships and works to foster respectful and compassionate relationships among students, faculty, staff, and the church. Our close community with strong teacher-student relationships has long been a Bethany distinctive. Each student is paired with a faculty mentor, and they meet every two weeks to discuss things outside of academics, as well. The underlying goal is to support each student’s growth as a whole person in tandem with rigorous academic learning. At Bethany, people take an interest in each other and build lasting friendships that provide a sense of belonging.
