Our mission statement is the reflection of our clear and continued commitment to these Core Values: Christian Education, Academic Excellence, Diversity, Character Education, and Family Commitment. Bethany School has been a beacon of hope and a sanctuary for children and families for almost 125 years. The school was founded in 1898 by the Society of the Trans---guration, a religious order of Episcopal women ("sisters"), and continues to serve the original mission of their ministry to this day. Bethany's traditions of academic excellence and spiritual growth make it a place where curious learners thrive. The spirit of kindness, simplicity, and joy, stated in the school's motto, abounds. Bethany is Ohio's only Episcopal school, a private, co-ed, K-8, small school of about 175 students, located in the historic Village of Glendale, Ohio. The Bethany community lays a firm spiritual and academic foundation for children to discover their passion, develop a sense of humanity, and live purposeful lives of service. The school has just completed construction- within the last 3 years- of LEED Platinum Certified academic buildings, with the installation of geo-exchange wells, natural play landscapes using site-recycled hardwood, flourishing gardens, and solar panels on a beautifully tended 23-acre campus. Bethany is poised for continued growth and development.
