Bethany Lutheran School

Bethany Lutheran School has Mother's Day Out and Preschool through Grade 8.
Our school environment is safe, comfortable, and nurturing to the students and families.
We are a Christ-centered community where our faith in Jesus is lived out.
The faith and values of the family are built upon to create a solid foundation to take the students through life.
The staff are Christian, loving, and positive. The teaching faculty respects and understands the different needs of students and provides an academically challenging environment.
The small class sizes allow teachers to know children well, forming the basis for truly individualized instruction.
We at Bethany Lutheran School are committed to empower each child to realize his/her academic, aesthetic, spiritual, physical, emotional and social potential as a child of God.
Through instruction and experience, we are further committed to help children develop into responsible Christian citizens who are skilled in cooperation, Christian service, problem solving and academic performance, who value self-worth, and who are committed to lifelong learning.

The preschool is fantastic! The teachers and staff are loving and nurturing and teach so much more than just the basics. It is great to hear songs about Jesus and how is our savior. Our son loves going to school and we have enrolled in Kindergarten. He can't wait for school to start in August.

The preschool program is fantastic. The program is grounded in Christ with Bible stories included in each session. In addition our son has brought home some wonderful art projects and enjoys the movement class.
