- The dreams of a pioneer woman, the zeal of a missionary priest and the commitment and strength of five Dominican Sisters created the tradition of excellence we call Bethlehem Academy.
- The 4 Dominican principles guiding Bethlehem Academy are study, prayer, service and community.
- B.A. becomes a pioneer school in technology as it implements a one-to-one laptop program - issuing each student a laptop computer to use during the school year.
