Bethlehem Christian School is a private non-denominational Christian school, split into two campuses to service students from Preschool all the way through 12th grade.

School Size: 193 Students
Student/Teacher Ratio: 13:1

$6,445 (Full day, 5 day a week, first child). Tuition rates can vary. Our rates lower for each additional child enrolled, as well as for part-time or half-day students.

Financial Aid:

BCS offers a need-based financial aid program for children enrolled full-time, K-8.

Curriculum:

Our curriculum is developed to offer an excellent academic education that meets state and national standards, along with a Biblical worldview, uniting faith and learning. The process of integration occurs in the classroom as the teacher utilizes the curriculum to meet the educational objectives established for each particular grade. While many different textbooks are used to accomplish our mission, they are simply tools used by our teachers to assist in the instructional process. The most effective kind of Biblical integration is carried out through the Christian witness and testimony of the Christian teacher, who use God’s Word as the only source of truth. Bethlehem Christian School teachers challenge students to think critically about what they read both in secular and Christian publications. We want our students to seek truth, with the knowledge that God’s Word is the only inerrant source of truth.

Percentage of Graduating Class: 100% in 2020
After School Programs: Yes
Computer Capabilities:

As we prepare students for a world run by tech, we make it a priority to teach them with the tools that will allow them to succeed. Both our Upper and Lower Campuses are equipped with iPads and MacBooks, and many of our classrooms utilize SmartBoards. Integrating technology into K-12 education allows students to interact with their learning material, have fun with their curriculum, and become excited about the possibilities in their education.

Our High School program specifically uses a blended model, which merges traditional classroom instruction with online distance-learning opportunities. This allows our students to have more options for elective courses, customize their curriculums, and even earn college credit through dual-enrollment.

School Clubs:

We are excited to offer a variety of opportunities to meet the interests of our student body!

Between our Upper and Lower Campuses, our offerings include: Yearbook Club, Student Senate, STEM Club, Chess Club, Praise Team, and Tech Team.

For our athletics, we currently offer Basketball, Cross Country, and Track & Field, all for both boys and girls. We are planning to introduce Boy's Soccer and Girl's Volleyball teams for this coming school year.

Uniform Guidelines:

The dress standard at BCS is not intended to measure spirituality, but to serve as a tool in fostering the academic and character development of students as they participate in the business of education.

Our uniform suppliers are Flynn & O'Hara and Lands' End, however anything but gym clothes may be purchased from other uniform suppliers or stores as long as they are consistent in design. Having a BCS logo is optional, except for gym clothes.

We have Swap Shops throughout the year which allow families to trade uniform pieces and BCS branded clothes with each other, so that they do not need to buy new uniforms regularly as their children grow.

White, navy, or light blue Oxford button downs, Peter Pan blouses, polos, sweaters, and cardigans, are acceptable uniform tops.
Navy or khaki shorts, pants, skirts, and skorts, are acceptable uniform bottoms.
Navy, khaki, or plaid jumpers are also acceptable.
