I cannot thank God enough for bringing our family to Bethany Lutheran Church and School. It is a place where the teaching of Christ crucified and risen for the forgiveness of our sins is placed front and center, both in the church and school. I have been more than delighted to see the spiritual growth in my sons as they have progressed through the grades. Not only does Bethany deliver solid, confessional Lutheran doctrine, its students go on to excel in the surrounding high schools. As a high school teacher in one of the neighboring districts, I have had Bethany students come through my building and have seen how they perform academically and socially compared to their peers. The only difference you could see is how well they behave and with what respect they treat the staff, fellow students and the facilities. If you're worried that sending your child to Bethany will not give them the same academic foundation as the surrounding government schools, then you are mistaken. We are admonished to bring our children up in the faith, Bethany is a great place to do just that, in addition to preparing them for the academic rigors of the government schools. Look no further, your search is over!

For our son, Bethany was an outstanding educational experience!!! The school was welcoming and felt like a family. His move to Naperville Central High School was an easy transition because of the high level of academic excellence at Bethany. Their emphasis is definitely on the whole child. Their strong programs in the arts, sports, and a strong spiritual foundation all contributed to making our son a well-rounded individual.
