At Bethany School, we believe that the best way for students to BELIEVE, ACHIEVE, and SUCCEED is through a well-rounded academic program along with a rich extracurricular program. Bethany School students enjoy a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities including the following:
Field Trips: Each class will go on 3-4 field trips per year. Each field trip is directly connected to academic content being studied in the classroom.
Physical Education: Bethany School employs a full-time PE teacher for grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. In addition to instruction in the rules and practice of various sports, students will participate in calisthenics, motor skills, Presidential Fitness Training, and much more. Elementary school classes meet for PE twice per week, while middle school students dress for PE four days per week.
Music: Because we believe that it is an important part of the learning process, music is incorporated in many different areas of our programs. Middle school students have the opportunity to be a part of our Chapel Worship Team. We also offer weekly piano lessons for an additional fee. All of our students take part in our annual holiday performances at Thanksgiving, Christmas and/or Easter.
Art: Art allows your student to express their learning through tactile and visual experiences. Each classroom uses arts and crafts as part of the learning process. Middle School students learn from the Meet the Masters program, for formal art instruction five times per year. This program teaches students about classic and modern artists as well as their artwork. Students then return to the class to create their own masterpieces in a similar medium. Middle School students take a semester of daily art instruction.
Clubs: Bethany hosts a number of exciting after school clubs for students of different ages. Clubs vary by age and by year.
Sports: Bethany Athletes strive for excellence in the classroom and on the field, where they compete against other Christian Schools in our league. Sports include:
Travel: In addition to classroom field trips, our upper grades culminate annual units of studies with a class trip. These trips give student the opportunity to see and experience what they have learned outside the bounds of a textbook and classroom setting.

Technology: Technology is an integrated learning tool that allows students to learn in new and exciting ways. Besides a full computer lab and full-time technology coordinator, Bethany School is also hosts a mobile iPad lab for use in classrooms. Students have regular access to lab time through classroom instruction as well as after school time. Teachers also can check out the iPad cart as they integrate technology into rich lesson plans, including research, videos, presentations, animation, and much more.
