Bethany Christian School’s purpose is to partner with parents to educate, develop and nurture students for a life of Christ-centered excellence in academics, Christian character and servant leadership.  We are first and foremost an academic institution with biblical truth integrated throughout our curriculum.  We employ best practices that are student focused in our approach. 

We use a variety of curriculum from two main sources.  We employ largely traditional textbooks for language arts, mathematics and social science from renowned publishers such as McGraw Hill and Harcourt.  For science and Bible we use the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Purposeful Design curriculum.   We believe that teachers teach students, not curriculum, and give our teachers the tools and flexibility to differentiate instruction. 

Our Lion Learning Academy (LLA) offers one-to-one tutoring for students with learning differences using the Barton Reading & Spelling System, a multi-sensory, direct, explicit, structured and sequential intense intervention literacy program that is researched and evidence based.
