WELCOME TO BETHANY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Bethany Christian School, established in 1980, is a ministry of Rio Vista Community Church that offers PK2-Grade 8. The school is located in the Rio Vista neighborhood of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida and currently has approximately 265 students. Bethany is well known for offering academic excellence in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. Small class sizes coupled with individualized attention ensure that our students experience maximum success on the academic, emotional, and spiritual fronts.
EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMICS
Year after year, our students achieve scores well above the national average on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. For the 2013-2014 school year, Bethany placed in the top 10% of participating schools; our schoolwide average performance was one year and one month above grade level. In addition, over the last 2 years 18 BCS students have been selected for Duke University Talent Identification Program on the basis of their superior ITBS scores.
Bethany's middle school graduates routinely matriculate into the high schools of their choice. In the past, our eighth-graders have been accepted to St. Thomas Aquinas, Cardinal Gibbons, Westminster Academy, University School, and American Heritage. We are fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the National Council for Private School Accreditation, and Christian Schools of Florida. Bethany is also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International.

Let the heavens rejoice,
and let the earth be glad,
let the sea be moved,
and the fullness thereof:
the fields and all things that are in them
shall be joyful.
Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice
before the face of the Lord,
because he cometh…
