I enjoy the school thoroughly. Upon finding out I was going to attend Bethlehem, I was shocked, and told my parents that the only types of people that lived, worked, and went to school in Bardstown were total snobs, and that I would never, ever even think of attending that school. Friends, I was wrong. The people that live, work, and go to school (especially at Bethlehem) are some of the nicest, most courteous people you'll ever meet in your lifetime. The teachers are fantastic, the students are well-behaved, clean-cut and mannerly, and the parents are involved in their child's/children's life/lives. I enjoy going to school every day, learning new concepts, and striving to become the best that I can be. I think that it's because Christ's continual and utter prescence in the school makes it so unique and empowering. Thank you Bethlehem, for making

Bethlehem is a school that develops the minds of each individual child, giving them a strong foundation to acquire the tools needs to accomplish any desires a child has of reaching their full expectation. With teachers that exhibit strong background and degrees in their educational areas of expertise. They have set the standard in there classed to be reached by there student which help them to deal with class structure, discipline and time management, while allowing them to prepare for attending college. With the teachers high credentials they require students to meet their highest potential and direct them toward there college goals. I feel that there academic and spiritual based curriculum will be the stepping stone for any student looking to succeed. Bethlehem is the real BHS! Stop by and check it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
