A Christian Private School Serving Students in K-12

Before and After-School Programs

Before and after-school student programs serve BCS parents by providing supervision for their children outside of school hours. The school provides free supervision before school from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. For the safety of our students, BCS requires that students who arrive on-campus prior to 7:30 a.m. — or remain on-campus after dismissal — be enrolled in one of the following options (or be a participatant in a school-sponsored activity).

A.C.E. AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM (After-hours Connections and Enrichment)

After-hours Connections and Enrichment (better known as A.C.E.) is a program offered through Bethesda Christian School. A.C.E. is held on regular school days from 3:30-5:30, Monday through Friday. A.C.E. is not held on half-days.

A student who is picked up late from school will be sent to A.C.E., which is held in the cafeteria. The student may participate on a full-time, part-time, or as-needed basis. Children in grades K-6 have opportunity to participate in enrichment activities, including arts and crafts and life application devotionals. A time for students to work on homework is also given.

Students in grades 7-12 have a study station which will provide them with access to schoolbooks and supplies, as well as appropriate teenage literature.
