K - 12 Interdenominational Christian School



John Merry, Academic Dean

At Bethany Academy, a Christian school in Bloomington, Minn., our commitment to academic excellence and spiritual formation are inseparable, and our mission statement reflects this:  “Equipping students through Christ-centered relationships and academic excellence to impact the world for Christ.” This dual focus is vital in creating lifelong learners and Christ-like disciples.

Through an Advanced Placement Philosophy that begins in kindergarten and continues all the way through the senior year of high school, our students learn critical thinking and problem solving skills within a biblical worldview context.

We are proud to be accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), an accrediting organization recognized by the state of Minnesota for growing and enhancing quality educational institutions and their faculties.

Proverbs 9:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”  When our students study science, math, English, social studies, health, etc., in the Christian, biblical worldview environment of Bethany Academy, they truly gain both wisdom and greater understanding!
