Our Vision is to...

   Instill a passion for Learning.

   Inspire a life of Christian Service.

   Ignite the Imagination.

From the complexities of the tiniest of living cells, to the endless expanses of our universe, God has created so many amazing things.


Here at Bethany students will learn about the laws in physical science, life processes, environmental issues, the earth's weather and the wonders of far away galaxies, and how God chose to create us, to care for us, and to love us so much that he would send His only Son to save us.
