Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in Bethany Christian School, a ministry of Bethany Church.  Founded in 1975, our mission is to provide a Christ-centered learning environment where students are able to learn who they are in Christ and to discover and develop their God-given talents to empower them to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.

In accordance with this mission, the philosophy of BCS is twofold.  First, we are a Christian school for Christian families.  Bethany Christian School is to disciple Christian children of Christian parents; therefore, our admission process has several components including a pastoral recommendation for the family and student, a family interview, and verification of the family’s support of the beliefs and biblical worldview that will be an integral component of the student’s education at BCS.

Next, in our mission to help prepare our students to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives, our program involves academic rigor, biblical worldview shaping, and foreign language and fine arts training. Academic rigor is a part of all class instruction throughout the school as our students are taught how to think and how to evaluate the essential questions of life based on God’s Word rather than the philosophies of this world.

The new student enrollment procedure, which is outlined in this packet, begins the first week of January.  We have included application instructions for your convenience as you proceed with the enrollment process. Enrollment is not finalized until all forms have been completed and returned, along with all appropriate fees, to the school office.

We hope that this helps you understand the purpose and philosophy of our school.  Please do not hesitate to all if you have any questions.   Thank you for considering Bethany Christian School.  We look forward to serving you and your children.

In His Service,

Stephanie Edmonds
