Admissions Process

Welcome to Bethany!  We’re thrilled you are interested in joining our school.  The following steps will guide you through the BCS school admissions process.


Give us a call! We’d love to hear from you and get to know more about your family.  This is a great opportunity to tell us why you feel BCS is a good fit for your child.  Our Admissions Director, Shari Siewert, is looking forward to hearing from you! Call us at 626-355-3527.


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.


Come meet us! As soon as all the application materials have been submitted and received, the Admissions Director will contact you to schedule an Educational Success Consultation with our Head of School, Dr. William Walner.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about our school and take a campus tour.  Your child will also have the opportunity to shadow and observe the class that they will be joining.*

*Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 policies and restrictions, we are unable to offer a student shadowing opportunity at this time.


Student Assessment. 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.


Review. 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.
