We have been at Bethel for two years. We were at a school that had a lot of love, but wasn''t very strong in academics. I chose Bethel because I heard it was an academically challenging environment. My son''s first year at Bethel, I commented to his teacher that I knew he was a bit of a follower and she said no, he has grace and doesn''t want anyone to be left out or upset. I''d never really looked at it that way. Bethel definitely has great academics, but what I really love is that I also have that environment of love that I didn''t want to lose.

Bethel Christain Academy is providing a strong foundation for my children. There are academic skills that they are being taught that are not emphasized in public school. The teachers are caring and challenge their students.

One child has already graduated from Bethel and I have more still attending. Bethel provides a nurturing Christian environment but also an academically challenging curriculum which we were looking for. The Principals, teachers and staff are very involved and truly believe in parent-teacher partnership. The classes are small which provides an opportunity for teachers to interact with students and for students to really gain friendships and trust. I would highly highly recommend Bethel Christian Academy. As parents, we love it .. but when your children also say they love their school .. that speaks volumes!

My children have been at Bethel from K4 all through middle school. It provides a wonderful Christian environment and a great learning atmosphere. Classes sizes are small and the teachers care about their students. As my children graduated one by one, they were prepared spiritually and academically for all challenges in high school. They were able to adjust to rigorous schedules as well as maintain good grades and Christian character because of the foundation at Bethel. I highly recommend this school.

At Bethel Christian Academy, we provide a rigorous curriculum that prepares our students for high school and beyond in a caring Christian environment. It has been my pleasure to work with many parents and students over the years, and I always look forward to the times when alumni come by to visit. They are doing well in high schools, colleges, and in their chosen careers and many continue to report that the education they received at BCA was instrumental to their success. I encourage prospective parents to come by and check us out!
