School Notes:


Bethesda aims to fulfill its mission through its emphasis on character, academics and service.

Character: Transforming the heart. The BCS administration strongly believes that true success is contingent upon a vibrant relationship with Jesus and the development of godly character. These values are infused into the design of the school and in every facet of a student's experience.

Academics: Preparing with purpose. The BCS academic program aims to draw out the God-given potential residing within each student and promote good stewardship of his abilities. In keeping with the academic preparation preferred by colleges for incoming students, the rigorous BCS curriculum strongly emphasizes writing, math, science and foreign language.

BCS students are rewarded for their efforts by consistently scoring well above the state and national average on standardized achievement tests. By their senior year, Bethesda students' average composite SAT results are 300-400 points above state and national mean scores.

Service: Making a difference. BCS believes that character development and academic preparation are ultimately designed to equip students in fulfilling God's purpose for their lives. BCS provides students with practical opportunities to shine the light of Christ to others and make a difference through giving and service, both in the local community and abroad.
