Naturalization Ceremony at BA

The Civics class is diligently working to plan and host a naturalization ceremony to be held at the school Friday, April 13 at 10 am. After attending a ceremony held at Bloomington Civic Plaza (a first for many of them!), they were inspired to get more involved in the plight of immigrants in this country. They are working on the numerous details of planning this type of event and are excited to see 50 people walk into this building as immigrants and leave as citizens. We would love for the larger school community to join us for this event but please be aware, space may be limited. You can contact Jennie Hohnstadt ( if you are interested in the details or would like to help during the event.

Over the last 40 years the High School Page Program has been dedicated to providing participants with hands-on access to our state government in action. Drew Adamek and Abigail Fitzgibbons have been awarded a week in Saint Paul, to be exposed to a wide variety of experiences, designed to provide them with a deep understanding of our state government.
Among the many highlights included in each student’s week at the Capitol are:

  • Individual meetings with legislators designed to allow students to discuss the issues that matter most to them.
  • Experiencing the legislative process firsthand by assisting members during legislative session.
  • Participating in a mock committee session designed to develop students’ leadership skills and to inspire them to think critically about the issues confronting our state.
  • Providing students with the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.

Congratulations to our 2 participating Bethany Academy Juniors!


The doors to Bethany Academy will be locked from 7:30-7:45 am, to secure our students and staff in the mornings. The students will have to ring the doorbell to get into the school if they arrive to school early. At 7:45 am an office staff person or a volunteer will be at the front doors to greet the students and visitors entering the school at that time. The doors will continue to be locked throughout the school day.
