About Us
Our Mission & Vision

First and foremost, Bethany School is a direct ministry of Bethany Church, our parent organization. Bethany School is fully accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). Our school has a friendly working relationship with the Long Beach Unified School District and other private and public schools in the area. A number of our staff also hold memberships in various professional organizations and take part in regular research-based professional development courses. In addition, we work with the non-profit organization Opportunity Schools in order to provide special education resources for students with unique learning needs.

Connect in relationship with God, the church, and others Grow spiritually, understanding God’s Word, and Grow academically, understanding their part in the world He created Go from here spiritually and academically transformed, ready to impact the world for Him.

Vision of Bethany School

We desire to glorify God and see students transformed into well-educated disciples of Jesus, who BELIEVE, ACHIEVE and SUCCEED.

Statement of Faith

The mission of the school is to be a bridge to the church, all staff work toward the same mission and under the same Statement of Faith as Bethany Church.

We believe that the education process is God-ordained and directly given to the parents. The Christian school is simply an extension of the home and therefore it is vital for the home and school to work together.

The education process is used by the Holy Spirit to bring the student into fellowship with God, to develop a Christian mind set, and to train in godly living, so that he/she can fulfill God’s total purpose for his/her life. The student must develop a personal relationship with God. The student should grow spiritually, (I Cor. 2:14-16), mentally (Dan. 1:3-4; Phil 4:7-9), physically (Gen.. 1:26-29; I Cor. 6:13-20), and socially (Romans 12:17-21). The students must view all truth as God’s truth and integrate and interpret everything from a Biblical perspective. We believe Christian education equips students with skills and knowledge that culminates in practical life applications (wisdom). We strive to give an education that is spiritually, morally, and academically excellent.
