Goshen, Indiana, is known as the Maple City because of its many maple trees. The city offers many diverse cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities, including biking and walking trails, canoeing and kayaking opportunities, and easy access to snow skiing, beaches, boating, white water rafting, camping, and hiking. Goshen has small town values and charm, while offering activities and experiences often found in larger nearby cities. Mennonites, and Amish, were among the early settlers in this area, first arriving in 1831. While you can still see Amish driving horse-pulled buggies on our streets, Goshen is a dynamic and growing community of over 31,000 residents nestled in the center of the northern Indiana county of Elkhart.
“When I moved to Elkhart, I carefully researched educational opportunities for my daughters. Bethany stood above all other options and has proven to be even more than I expected—and well worth the commute. Bethany has helped my family achieve our dream by preparing my two daughters to succeed at two of the top liberal arts colleges in the country: Williams College (ranked no. 1 by U.S. and World News Report) and Bowdoin College (ranked no. 6).”
