Since 1981, Bethel Christian School has invested in the lives of children in the Gibson County area. BCS offers a strong academic program taught from a Christian worldview. The children learn in a loving and stimulating environment. We are grateful to have a newly updated computer lab and a program for students who need some additional scholastic help.

General Policy Statement
At Bethel Christian School we believe that God has placed the FULL responsibility for raising a child in the hands of the parents and that God has called us to do all that is in our power to train up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Bethel Christian School exists to aid you in fulfilling your responsibility. We CANNOT fulfill your responsibility for you! We believe that the sacrifice on your part to provide your child with a quality education is worth every ounce of extra commitment.
- Pray daily for your child.
- Stay abreast of your child’s academic and school activities at all times.
- Handle any problems between school and parents discretely.
We view our TEACHERS as MISSIONARIES whose first desire is to serve the Lord! Your words of assurance and encouragement throughout the year are priceless!
Finally, we would appreciate your financial and volunteer help. Tuition does not cover the full cost of educating your child. Give to BCS when you can and enjoy the benefit of tax exemption.
