Our Curriculum

Bethel uses a variety of curriculum to help our students be well rounded in their education. We incorporate A Beka Book, Saxon Math, Shurley English, Alpha Omega and more recently Manhattan Virtual Academy. We also have computer programmed learning activities, Bible curriculums and other resources as needed.


Bethel's goal is to have all students meet academic standards through quarterly, semester and term examinations that include oral and written tests, class projects and in other forms of documentation. Students shall maintain no less than a 70% grade average in all classes or will go on academic probation requiring mandatory tutoring and possible dismissal if progress is not shown.


Bethel uses 2 types of grading scales: Traditional for academics and Subjective for Citizenship, Behavior & Attitude such as attentiveness, cooperation, effort, obedience and responsibility.
