Appropriate testing for students is required in some cases to determine that Bethany can best meet the student's needs. The school's decision to have a student tested will be made upon receipt of the application and teacher recommendation form. Bethany is not able to serve students with severe learning differences or behavioral concerns.
All new students to Bethany Lutheran School will be admitted under a 45 day probationary period. During this time the student's academic and behavioral progress will be monitored to be sure that Bethany is able to meet the needs of the student.
Bethany Lutheran School Loyalty Program
We value our families and the commitment they make to attend Bethany Lutheran School! In today's society it is such a privilege to be able to form close bonds with fellow classmates and deep friendships within a school family! We encourage all school families to strive toward the goal of attending our school from Kindergarten through 8th grade, and want to do as much as possible to help that happen.
When you pay tuition at Bethany, $10 from every month paid will be held in an account for you. If attending a full school year, that amounts to $100. The money in your account will accumulate each year and is redeemable on registration day of your 8th grade year.
Thank you for your support of our school, your commitment to your children and for allowing us to be a part of their lives!
