We choose this school 16 years ago after looking at many others in the area. The small class sizes and the warmth of the staff and the teachers won us over immediately. Since then 2 of our kids graduated from Bethany, went on to succeed in the Poly PACE program, and one attends the University of Notre Dame, another is on track to attend UC Berekely . Our 3rd will graduate from Bethany this June and will be attending high school in Texas. Yes, Bethany Lutheran students are given every tool to be successful and motivated lifelong learners with a solid Christian foundation to help them navigate life.

What an amazing school! This faith-based campus is filled with caring and professional administrators, teachers and staff. They care for and see my child as an individual, created by God with gifts unique to himself. Every student is encouraged to grow spiritually, emotionally and academically. We are extremely happy with our child's experiences and would highly recommend this school!

We have had our 2 boys at Bethany for almost 6 years and have loved it. Both kids are thriving academically and socially. We have found all their teachers to be well educated, caring, communicative and thoughtful in their teaching. Love the enrichment programs offered, the opportunities to give back to those in need, the athletic program and the Christian education that have both received thus far. A++

Our children's Christian education is a top priority in our home. We love Bethany! The teachers are amazing and our boys are experiencing a top-notch education, are involved in great programs and are daily encouraged in their relationship with Jesus. We would very highly recommend Bethany to any parent looking for their child to be a valued member of an amazing school!

Private school tuition seems to go nowhere but up. We look at some of the reasons why and offer the opinion that a private school education is still good value.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
