The Bethany Christian Academy family exists to provide Christ-centered, data driven education to equip students with academic excellence and spiritual growth.
The Bethany Christian Academy is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church with the express purpose of providing an education guided by Christian principles. As such, a belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental to our curriculum. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs because true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student, preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
- develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
- master the basic academic skills
- value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
- cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessings God intended.
The Bethany Christian Academy operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
