Thank you for your inquiry about Bethany School.
Bethany School is a fully accredited elementary school, housing 400 preschool - 8th grade students. In addition to quality teachers, small class sizes and high standards, Bethany School provides a nurturing, Christian environment for students to grow to BELIEVE, ACHIEVE, & SUCCEED. Students learn to make real-life connections to classroom learning through classroom iPads, music instruction, arts, hands-on activities and field trips. Bethany Students take part in daily Bible instruction as well as weekly chapel. Extra-curricular activities include after school clubs and sports, choir and piano lessons, Meet the Masters Art program, travel weeks for 4th - 8th grades, and much more. We also provide a full-day kindergarten program, before and after school daycare, and summer enrichment programs for grades K-5.
We would enjoy meeting with you and sharing more about how your children could be a part of the Bethany School experience. Please contact our school secretary at (562) 597-2814 and schedule an appointment that would be convenient for you to meet with our administrative team this week and take a tour of our campus. She can also give you more information about tuition rates at that time. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

School Notes

  • Thank you for your interest in Bethany School. As a ministry of Bethany Church, our desire is to partner with parents to help students grow academically and spiritually.  While we do not have a church membership requirement, Bethany School has adopted an admissions policy that opens our school to families who are supportive of our philosophy, objectives, and standards of education, and whose children meet our enrollment standards.  Our purpose is to serve families who desire not simply a private education, but a distinctly Christian education for their children.
