Bethesda International Academy Photo #1 - Developing Global Leaders for the 21st Century.
"The Education of the Soul is the Soul of Education" Welcome to Bethesda International Academy! Excellence is often an overused word in education, but excellence in all things is the standard to which we aspire.Specifically, the excellence of Christ comes to mind.We do not subscribe to the idea that Christian schools must offer an inferior product because they are ministries.Rather, we desire to reflect the excellence of Christ in all things.Our goal is to offer an education second to none, and to do it all through the lens of a Biblical worldview.Our curriculum and methods will be exceptional, and students will receive a 21st Century education that prepares them for a digital and global economy and directs them to pursue their place in it.
