Welcome to Bethlehem Academy!
It is a blessing to serve Bethlehem Academy as the President/Principal in my 15th year as an administrator with 20 years in Catholic education. I am thankful for the partnerships within our community that support our scholars, our staff, and our families. We are proud to continue to provide excellence in Catholic education for Faribault and our surrounding communities. Bethlehem Academy is sponsored by the Sinsinawa Dominican sisters, now Dominican Veritas Ministries. We are thankful for their governance and guidance to all of our schools as we begin our 159th academic year.

Providing excellence to our scholars each year is essential to the mission at Bethlehem Academy (BA). To ensure excellence, we’ve added a middle school dean of students and will be partnering with our parish staff, Katie Opsal and Dana Pemrick, as well as our priests, to enrich each scholar's faith experience. This year we have new business classes, a Church History class, War History course and AP Music Theory. Each year we strive to expand the programs, spiritual and educational classes available to our scholars. Mass continues to be offered weekly along with Adoration, and our BA Peer Ministry team adopted the bible verse: “Be strong and courageous. Do no be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 - Bible Verse for 2023-24

If you are looking at BA for the first time, call to set up a visit and experience the difference when you become a part of the BA family! Go Cardinals!
