| Families Feedback
Bethlehem is fostering a community of love, safety, academic leadership, responsibility, integrity, and most importantly, Jesus-led guidance and acceptance. Our entire family has benefited from the incredible atmosphere, not just our 1st and 4th graders. Children WILL grow up. Finding their voice in the world and in life will host its own unique challenges. This place, their school, their teachers, the staff… This is a place they know they are loved, supported, cared for and challenged. The best part is that Jesus is the center, from which all this goodness flows, so our children and our family will be forever benefited by the hope, grace and peace we’ve found at Bethlehem

My twins have had the AMAZING privilege of attending the ELC program for 3 years now. They will be starting Kindergarten next fall with BLCS. I could literally write a book regarding how truly exceptional this FAMILY is to us. It is worth every penny and an investment in your child so great that the rewards are immeasurable. The pure love, presence of God and entire atmosphere is something so spectacular that it is hard to find the right words to even do my feelings and sentiments justice.

Wonderful school I feel so glad I found Bethlehem when I was looking for a Kindergarten for my son. A totally loving and unique community experience.
Hillary O. - BLS Parent
We LOVE Bethlehem! I did not go there myself, but several family members did at one time, and when it came time to put our daughter in preschool, I knew this is where I wanted her. The teachers and staff are wonderful and the community that we have become a part of is simply amazing. With some of the things uncovered in kindergarten, she would have been lost anywhere else. We can’t wait to see what 1st grade brings!
| INTEGRATED CAMPUS
Our ELC, Elementary, and Junior High students all learn together on our sizable, multi-purpose campus. This allows students and families alike to eagerly anticipate the next phase of their educational journey at Bethlehem! Additionally, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students have the opportunity to be partnered with a chapel buddy. This special bond carries through the hallways when buddies greet one another on non-chapel days, and also lends itself to special relationship-building activities throughout the school year.
| SECURITY MEASURES
The safety of our student body is of the utmost importance to us at Bethlehem. To that end, extensive measures have been taken to ensure that our campus, and therefore, our students - are able to learn in a safe and secure environment. The security of our entire campus is closely monitored and addressed on an ongoing basis.
| FAITH INTEGRATION
Everything that happens at Bethlehem has our faith woven throughout. That means the lessons our students learn in the classroom, on the playground, while participating on sports teams; the prayers said before and after meals; our weekly chapel worship and daily devotions - the goal is that everything we say and do - is all to shine Jesus’ love to others.
