My personal experience with Bethesda Christian School has been exceptional! The environment is absolutely amazing and everyone cares for everyone is caring enough to help out when needed! The curriculum is fantastic and it pulls out the best in us. I can't really even think of anything that should change because they are already going through so much change this year. So, I'm just going to see how it goes!

Bethesda Christian School in Haltom City TX is a Biblically based private Christian School. The school has gone through some transitions in the last 2-3 years with new administrative staff. During the next year, the school is adding dual credit classes through Evangel University. The school has excelled over the years in college prep and I hope that trend continues. The campus is VERY safe with 2 different checkpoints monitored to gain entry into the school. The school will be adding 6 man football this coming Fall, along with the robust soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball, softball, track, cross country, and golf programs. The fine arts have improved in the last 2 years with a very successful production of Seussical the Musical during the Spring of 2022. Along with a state-recognized choir and symphonic band. Highly recommend sending your kid here, the bang for your buck is about as good as you can get for a private Christian school.

I have attended Bethesda since second grade, and am now a graduating senior! My favorite thing about this school is that when you walk in the doors, you feel an of community. Christ is overflowing in this place. Not only are the teachers helpful in any situation, they care about who you are at all times and are genuinely applauding your success. In the fall, I will be attending LeTourneau University to study Psychology. I cannot wait to fulfill God's calling and I know that without Bethesda's guidance throughout the years, I would have struggled to make it possible.

We have been part of the Bethesda family for 8 years now. It has been an immense blessing to our family. Not only is the education top-notch, and college-readying but they are also preparing our students to be calling-ready. By this, I mean that students are ready to answer God's calling for their lives when they graduate from this ordained place. Beyond the classroom, our family has been through several health scares over the last 5 years and BCS answered the call to support up with meals, prayers, even childcare, and thoughtful gifts. When I tell you that this is a family, I truly mean it. You will be blessed by BCS!

Hello! We are a military family and with that comes a lot of moving. I have worked at, and my children have attended many different schools. This is hands down the best school I have ever been a part of. First....when you walk in the school doors you can feel the presence of The Holy Spirit. It just feels right. Second, the teachers, staff, and administration are top-notch! Everyone goes above and beyond for these students AND families..... we do it because we love and care for them and they also love and care for us. The school is like one big family and we all appreciate each other. I`ve never seen a school like it. Third..... academics are outstanding. Last... Fine Arts and sports are highly valued and it shows. Please come see for yourself! Spend the day with us and you will see.

From our 1st contact with BCS, we noticed there was something special about this school. The admissions process was easy and they helped our daughter feel at home. Our daughter transferred to BCS for her senior year and it was has been one of the best decisions we have made. She has felt wanted, needed, and seen. They have been welcoming and inclusive. We are so thankful the Lord led her to BCS. She has loved ending her high school career at BCS. The faculty has been awesome as well. We cannot say enough good things about BCS.
