About Bethany Academy

Bethany Academy, a Private K-12 Christian School, 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."

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. Located in Bloomington, MN we are accepting new registrations and would love to meet 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.

Our Philosophy

One of the greatest joys of Christian education is the opportunity to nurture and develop student’s God-given skills, gifts and abilities.  As a K-12 Private Christian School, we treasure this invaluable opportunity to guide students through a wide range of vibrant learning experiences as mandated in Proverbs 22:6 to “train up a child in the way he should go…”.  This training includes:

-partnership with parents (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)

-integration of Biblical truths and worldview throughout every academic discipline to encourage students to see, think, and live in the light of God’s Word

-rigorous academics taught by teachers who are committed to engage each student in the learning process so that it translates into a desire for lifelong learning

- creative arts which stimulates the growth of each student’s unique God-given talents

- a dynamic Christian community which allows students to share proof of God’s love in action

-a school community committed to support students from all backgrounds and educational levels and helping them to achieve their best, both personally and academically

Knowing that students of today face an immense amount of change ahead of them, Bethany Academy is a Christian School that proclaims that God is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.  We recognize the need for a strong education to adapt to the changing times while providing a foundation of biblical truth on which to stand.  This is what sets Bethany Academy apart.  Whether in the classroom, on the stage, or part of a sports team, our students are prepared for the next level through rigorous academics and high expectations.
