Summer provides many opportunities for students and their families to enjoy unforgettable books together. Bethany students entering Kindergarten through 8th Grade are asked to read from the summer reading lists developed for their upcoming grade.

Creating a habit of lifelong reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children.  Establishing this habit early, and nurturing it throughout their school years, is critical to their success in life.  We want our students to have a fun and happy summer while pursuing a book for enjoyment at the same time!  Happy reading!


Bethany Christian School provides a Christ-centered education that strives for both excellence and success for
each student.
