Bethel Christian School

Bethel Christian School is excited as we continue to plan for our first day back, August 24, 2020. The board, administration and teachers are continuing to watch new CDC guidelines and recommendations, Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Commonwealth's statements as this ever changing situation continues.
We are working hard at protocols and procedures to insure the healthiest environment we can for our school family.

This is our third year with students at bethel, and we love the environment! The stress of a typical day at school is greatly reduced by the calm, smaller atmosphere, and the teachers genuinely want students to succeed and grasp their teaching! We also love knowing our kids are learning about God and his great love for them!

My son graduated from here and my daughter is still a student. The teachers are amazing and really care about each student. They communicate with us and go the extra mile. Small classes and academically sound. We love that they've started a STEM program too. Really rounded school with great people.
