What Our Parents Say
I think it’s the uniqueness of the teaching style, the opportunity for the student to discuss openly, debate, analyze, etc. and the teachers are so open and friendly with the students, very positive experience for daughter.
It was obvious to even my son that the teachers cared about their students and prayed for them. I was also looking for a school that would teach a Christian perspective both in academics and for my children's moral development.
The safe and intimate Christ centered environment. My kids would be truly known by teachers and staff. Great education.
Small Class size/more opportunity for instruction and attention to be focused on my kids, Christian community, musical opportunity, k12, spiritual growth/discipleship opportunity, quality academics, financial willingness to make it possible to bring our entire family - when that time came.
Our favorite aspect of Bethany Academy is being in a place where we are known. My daughters' teachers make an effort to get to know their students and the students' families. This helps them better serve the whole child and tailor their education to the needs and interests of each class they teach.
Our first-grader loves gym class! we love the fact that every teacher knows our child by name and face. This gives us the peace of mind knowing that our child is safe and secure during the school day.
Something I believe is a positive for everyone in our family regarding Bethany Academy is the fact that we are known and valued, the community allows for involvement at the level in which works for your family. My children are known by their teachers and valued for what they bring to the classroom. The teachers are willing to meet them where they are at academically and social/emotionally.
