A Christ-centered, confident life grounded in faith and knowledge

Inter-denominational K-12 Christian School | Bloomington, MN



We are committed to engaging and inspiring students to be lifelong learners and increasing the development of their intellectual abilities.



We deliver education with a solid foundation of biblical truth, providing a foundation on which to stand.


Christ-centered Relationships

We encourage our students to build an authentic relationship with their creator while nurturing life-long relationships centered on a common desire to grow as disciples of Jesus.

About Bethany Academy

Bethany Academy has been partnering with parents since 1975 to educate students through a biblical worldview.  Parents can be confident that their children are learning the same values in school as are taught in the home. Students can be confident that they will be valued and taught with excellence.  With small class sizes and strong relationships, students receive the attention and nurturing they need to fulfill their God-given potential.

What Parents Say

Our children started attending Bethany mid year. They were relieved to be in a place where they could express their faith and grow stronger in their relationships with God. They felt accepted right away despite coming in mid year. We are grateful that the kids are in a place where teachers, staff and students can come alongside them to help them grow in their faith so they can go out into the world and be a part of the great commission.

Tim and Elisa

We have experienced a true partnership with Bethany Academy to nurture our children’s spiritual growth in Christ and equip them to be strong in their faith. They receive an excellent education, have the freedom to worship the Lord and study the Bible at school as well as enjoy extra-curricular activities with friends. The community of families have made Bethany a special place to call home for us.

Bethany Academy Parent

Admissions Process

1. School Tour

The first step is to schedule a time that you and your son or daughter can come see the school and you can start to find out whether Bethany Academy would be a good fit for your family.

2. Enrollment Forms

After the family interview we will help you fill out all the paper work including getting transcripts from previous schools. Once that's done we will set up a class schedule and get your child started at Bethany Academy.

3. Family Interview

The family interview is our opportunity to get to know you and your child. We are a Christian school and we require that at least one parent/ guardian be a Christian.

the right place for your kids?

Educational Excellence

Our Philosophy

As a school we want to esteem parents as primary educators in a child’s life. We believe every person is created with a purpose that only that individual can fulfill.

We will:

  • Reinforce the Christian values of home and church
  • Provide the highest quality education in a safe learning environment
  • Prepare students with the knowledge and skills through a side range of vibrant learning experiences
  • Develop students who are active learners, critical thinkers, creative spirits and devoted disciples of Jesus.
