WHY BETHANY ACADEMY
The teachers make an extra effort to not only instill knowledge in students, but also attempt to know students on a deeper level and establish a genuine relationship with them. Mark Mikhail
"I love that we strive for academic excellence but not at the cost of our Christian convictions." - Genelle Clark
"I knew when I walked in the door that this was the school my boys were meant to be at. Although there is no perfect place, this is as close as you can get."

It is true, God loves to bring joy to the hearts of His faithful. We at Bethany Academy are learning that He has a very funny sense of humor to boot.
In the last 24 hours we have been in awe of how He has taken an unbelievable half court shot to the world---bringing a glimpse of His humor this Christmas season. The resounding response after people have viewed the now famous video is one of happiness. Many people have said for some reason it brings them to happy tears.
The Ramey's, and Bethany Academy, are pleased -as -punch to play a role in His Christmas merriment. For us, the first video going viral was more than enough. However, God wasn't done yet. Click on the attached photo to see what happens when Angela Ramey attempts another shot on Good Morning America live.
The joy of the season is the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Only a God as big as our God could use Angela's heart for feeding the hungry and this school in such an amazing fashion. May these video's bring you unspoken joy and happiness.
Merry Christmas from Bethany Academy and the Rameys!
