Complete the online application

Included in the application is the payment of a $75 non-refundable fee, as well as submission of report cards, test scores, teacher and principal recommendations, and any IEP or 504 plans.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2022-23 school year. We are doing rolling admissions, meaning that we will evaluate your application as soon as it is complete. We still have room in many of our classes for the upcoming school year.


K-8 Student Assessment

Once your application is submitted, our Admissions Director will then schedule a student assessment for your child.  Our qualified teachers will briefly spend one-on-one time with your child assessing academic fundamentals, abilities, and performance.

Shadow Day (grades 1-8)

We offer an optional shadow day for grades 1-8. Your student is welcome to come be a Bethany student for the day. Shadow Days are a great way for us to get to know your student and for your student to get to know use. Usually we can do testing on the same day as the shadow day.



Interviews are a chance for our Admissions Director to get to know your student and for the student to ask any questions he or she may have. For younger students, interviews take place with a parent. The interview can take on the same day as a shadow day and/or testing day or can be on a separate day.


At this point in the enrollment process, the Admissions Team will review the application, additional documents, and student assessment.  You will be notified of the school’s decision.  If accepted, you will receive a link to fill out the BCS online enrollment packet and pay the $450 non-refundable enrollment fee.
