We highly recommend this school! At Bethany, your child is getting a Christ-centered, quality education. A family is feeling within the staff and the students gain knowledge, and confidence and form bonds with their supportive teachers. Our daughter will start first grade in the fall and she has been with Bethany since pre-school. Our preference was to homeschool, but we have seen the positive difference Bethany has made in our child! We are very impressed with the academic progress she has made and the extracurricular activities she can be involved in. Our daughter loves all the teachers and is so excited about learning and hearing God`s word.

Finding Bethany Christian Academy was such a blessing for our family. This small private school is bursting with love for its students and each teacher goes above and beyond to ensure each student gets the engagement they need to thrive. Our family has been with BCA since before the pandemic and with their support and loving effort, our child never fell behind. At-home online school was such a challenge, but BCA made every effort to ease the process and meet all state/county guidelines to get kids safely back in person when possible. Whatever your background, you are welcome at BCA. The staff and faculty love God and in turn, share His love and truth in all they do. I 100% recommend Bethany Christian Academy and look forward to seeing how my child and the school continue to grow.

My daughter is loving Bethany Christian Academy. The teachers are caring, and professional, and have been a tremendous encouragement to her. Since she has been here, we've seen drastic improvements in her confidence and academic proficiency. What's more, her knowledge and love for God are soaring to new heights. As parents, we have also appreciated the school's desire to be attentive and receptive to suggestions for improvement. Over the past few years, we have seen great strides taken which have made Bethany an even better place for our students. If you are looking for a school with high academic standards and an unwavering commitment to patterning with parents informing fully devoted followers of Christ, this place is worth checking out.

My girls have been incredibly served by the teachers at this school. Challenging academics, tailored to each child's needs, with great extra-curricular activities and small class sizes. A great school

I attended Bethany as a student. Plus, I worked there in my teen years as a daycare worker, and then a few years later as a teacher and chaplain. I highly recommend this school. When I went to high school after attending Bethany, I was more than prepared educationally for what high school had to offer. Now, as the youth pastor at the church, when the students go into high school from Bethany I still hear the same comment. I recommend this school not only for the academics, but also for the emphasis towards education based on Christian principles and emphasis on spiritual growth.
