Bethel Lutheran School offers a Christian Education for the whole child.
Students in the school find identity, purpose, and power for their lives by living in God's grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
The education is well rounded and provides spiritual instruction, intellectual achievement, social interaction, emotional development, physical education, and aesthetic experiences.
We, as believers and disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His Body here at Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church and School, in response to His Commission to make disciples of all peoples and in awareness of our unique, collective gifts, clearly see the mission before us to worship to grow to serve.

School Reviews

I am so thankful my children have had the opportunity to attend Bethel. All four of my children have attended or are attending the school. I believe Bethel excels academically, but even more importantly instills Godly character in every part of their life. They receive a strong foundation Biblically, and enter into the High School very well prepared academically and confident on who they are. The teachers passionately invest in their students and likewise require a lot from the students. Bethel has definitely been worth the investment!
