Bethany Lutheran School has offered a quality education in a Christ centered environment since it opened in 1935.
Bethany Lutheran School's mission is to train every child's head, heart, and hands for a lifetime of discipleship to God and service to their fellowman.
We believe that Christian education is a vital part of the Great Commission in which God commanded the church to, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations".
We believe that the purpose of Christian education is to provide quality education founded in God's Word and guided by the Holy Spirit, to cultivate Christian values.      Bethany Lutheran School is a benchmark school in the area of using technology for teaching and learning, using a desktop lab for whole class instruction, four mobile laptop labs, and a mobile I-Pad lab.  SmartBoards are used for instruction in all classrooms, with student response devices also used.  Bethany also has a Yamaha, "Music in Education" Keyboard lab for Music Instruction and a Physical Education Lab, with exercise bikes that interface with gaming systems.
