School Notes

  • Christian Discipleship: to teach students how to listen to, walk with, and be more like Christ.
  • Academic Excellence: to educate students to find their passion and develop their gifts and talents to love and to serve God in all aspects of life. 
  • School Community: to provide a safe, caring environment where students and families are encouraged to love your neighbor as yourself.
  • Mission Statement: We believe life has meaning and significance only in relationship with God.  We lead each student toward a relationship with Jesus Christ, and encourage each one to reach his or her unique potential. 
  • Vision: BCS delivers academic excellence from a biblical worldview, in a caring, Christ-centered environment.  By partnering with parents, we help students develop critical thinking skills and a strong foundation to recognize the God given talents and gifts with which they have been blessed so that they may become confident, intentional Christian leaders.

The quality of the academic program at Bethany Christian School is evidence in very strong ways through the lives of those who have gone through the school's program. Music, art, sports and various other activities are outstanding as well. The campus is convenient to the 101, is safe and is well suited to a K-8 environment. Recent parent comments about the school: BCS is a blessed environment; has positive energy; is safe; spiritually fulfilling; hard to imagine being anywhere else; immersion in biblical application; kids from school have been transformed and have a strong foundation
