Bethany Christian Schools to add third grade class

Bethany Christian Schools announces the addition of a third grade class, currently enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year.

Adding this grade allows Bethany to begin its strategic movement towards serving the community as an independent school for students in kindergarten through 12. Bethany is a dynamic learning community in which students are known, loved and prepared for their journey beyond school. Up until now, Bethany has served grades 4-12.

“This is a great opportunity for more students to be part of a community where teachers creatively develop student’s strengths, and faith is explored in a safe environment,” said Rex Hochstedler, chair of the Bethany board and current Bethany parent. 

The third graders will join fourth and fifth grade as part of the lower school, which emphasizes hands-on experiential learning with a focus on the fine arts, outdoor education, field trips, and a lively learning environment  that make the Bethany experience unique. 

Small class sizes allow students and teachers to connect on a deeper level. Because of this, students can grow and be challenged in a safe environment at Bethany—all the way through their senior year.

A parent of a current fourth grader emphasizes the importance of these connections saying, “You just feel like you’re cared for from the faith perspective, but also that people are really invested in your child’s development.”

Bethany welcomes new inquiries and applications from interested 3rd grade families.   Learn more at and set up an Enrollment Consultation with Enrollment Director Trish Yoder at

This exciting news comes on the heels of the completion of the Great Strides Capital Campaign and announcement of a planned groundbreaking to take place later this school year in the spring of 2021. Read more about the reenvisioned athletic complex here.
