BCS students undergo standardized testing each year. Grades K-8 take the Stanford Achievement Test in the spring. All freshmen, sophomores and juniors participate in College Board’s Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) each October. Bethesda does not require seniors to complete standardized testing, but the school does track their performance on college entrance exams.
The high academic performance of students at Bethesda Christian School begins in kindergarten, with a typical school achievement of two years above grade level on the Stanford Achievement Test. By their senior year, Bethesda students’ average composite College Board SAT results are 300-400 points above state and national mean scores.
