Bethany. Values.
Your Child.

Dropping your child off at college is a huge moment for any parent.

Bethany. Values. Me.

“Being a Christian at a large state university can be challenging, but the academic and spiritual foundations I built at Bethany prepared me more than I realized. Any success that I’ve had after Bethany can and should be credited to the incredible faculty who took the time and energy to work with me while I was there, encourage my faith, and prepare me for life post graduation.”

“I have remained in contact with many of my professors who genuinely care about my life after Bethany. I wouldn’t have had the same college experience without such an incredible group of people by my side”
