In the Upper School years, children transition into young adults preparing to leave home for college. The Upper School faculty and staff are passionate about investing in the lives of students both inside and outside of the classroom to prepare them with the skills and the confidence that they will need to be successful in college and subsequent stages of their lives.
To achieve this, faculty set high academic standards and devote themselves to helping their students meet those standards. Each student will find an appropriate level of challenge with options of on-level and honors or AP classes in English, Math, History, Science, Spanish and Latin. The Mt. Bethel graduate will enter college able to write well, speak well, and think well. The small class size enables faculty to know their students as individuals and give them the personal attention they need to reach their potential.
Beyond academics, we help students develop spiritually, physically, socially, and personally by providing a comprehensive co-curricular program of chapel, service, missions, athletics, fine arts, and social events. Supported by faculty guidance and parental involvement, we encourage students to take leadership roles in all aspects of these programs. Furthermore, faculty who function as advisors, coaches, and directors are able to develop deeper relationships with students outside of the classroom.
Put simply, we strive to be a community of faculty, students, and parents who are committed to loving God, working hard, and taking good care of one another. Our deepest desire is that our students would leave Mt. Bethel with the intellectual, spiritual, and personal capability to use their influence and opportunities to make the world more as God intends it to be. If you desire such an education for your child, we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you further about how the faculty and staff at Mt. Bethel can work with you and your child to help him or her become all that God has created him or her to be.
