Welcome to Bethlehem Academy!

Bethlehem Academy is a grade 6-12 Catholic middle and high school with a proud heritage of educating students in the Sinsinawa Dominican tradition since 1865. On behalf of the entire Bethlehem Academy team, we want you to know that we are truly excited that you have expressed an interest in our school.

It would be wonderful to meet you and speak with you about how our mission-driven academics, small classes, caring and committed teachers, and leadership opportunities in a variety of sports & activities can help your student thrive. Steeped in the Dominican Pillars of community, prayer, study, and ministry, our students are prepared for a future beyond the halls of Bethlehem Academy. We strive to provide a Christ-centered learning environment that promotes academic success and personal responsibility and will work in partnership with you to ensure that success.

We would love an opportunity to discuss our programs with you! We are currently offering personal, masked, distanced tours by request. We are also available by email, phone, Zoom, Google Meet (HangOut), FaceTime, or Skype. Please contact us at admissions@bacards.org to set up a time to discuss how our ACT-aligned, Catholic-centered curriculum and supportive Cardinal community can make a difference in the life of your student.
