Mt. Bethel Christian Academy provides an environment where students are beloved, feel they belong, and are provided opportunities to become all God designed them to be. MBCA offers families a strong academic program, with small class sizes and 1:1 technology, a robust spiritual life, with grade level mission projects, a championship sports program, with coaches who focus on sportsmanship as well as talent development, and a community where parents and faculty work to build relationships and help shape the hearts and minds of children.

Creating future generations of leaders who can express and defend their faith is no small task, but it is the mission at MBCA. By delivering a solid foundation of academic knowledge, students are challenged to use what they know in new ways. Whether it's the fifth grader who invents a way to clean up ocean pollution in Think Tank, or the seventh graders who team up to create parts on the 3D printer that will make their robot more efficient, MBCA students are consistently thinking outside the standard box. By delivering a solid foundation of spiritual belief, students are challenged to take the Word they know in their hearts out to other communities, both local and abroad. Whether it's the second graders collecting toys for Make a Wish, or the eighth graders leading Vacation Bible School in remote areas of the Bahamas, MBCA students know God and are willing to serve as beacons of hope and faith for others.

Beloved. Belong. Become. This is Mt. Bethel Christian Academy.
