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 7:40 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. For the safety of our students, BCS requires that students who arrive on-campus prior to 7:40 a.m. — or remain on-campus after dismissal — be enrolled in one of the following options (or be a participant 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 for elementary students. A.C.E. is held on regular school-days from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. A.C.E. is not held on half-days.

K-2 grades will be a cohort in one location, and 3-5 grades will be a separate cohort. An ACE teacher will go to classrooms at the end of the day and pick up children from their teacher. K-2 will go into the cafeteria and 3-5 will go to the living room.

For student pickup, parents will pull up to north portico and post a car rider sign in the passenger window. These signs will be furnished by the school. The person at the security desk will inform ACE staff, and that student will be sent to the security desk and loaded into their car.

If you need childcare on school breaks or 1/2 days, our onsite Bethesda Child Development Center will be able to offer childcare on those days. To register, please contact BCDC.

In ACE, we will practice the same measures as BCS to insure your child's health and safety. Following the same campus expectations, your child may need to be in a temporary quarantine if another student in their ACE cohort has a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

For more information about the A.C.E. program please contact the school.


Like Bethesda Christian School, Bethesda Child Development Center is a ministry of Bethesda Community Church. BCDC offers before school care beginning at 6:30 a.m. Interested families should contact Bethesda Child Development Center
