The Foundation of Bethany Lutheran School


The Bethany Lutheran Church congregation had a vision to build a Lutheran elementary school as an extension of its ministry to the Vacaville and surrounding communities.  The involvement and support of the church congregation continues, as it works with purpose to nurture in each person an active, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  What began as a Preschool serving the community since 1974 has now extended into a full-service education through the eighth grade.

H. Spenser said, “To prepare us for complete living is the function which education has to discharge."  A traditional, academic education is only enhanced by the Christian faith development that occurs at our school, allowing it to be a complete educational experience.  Students who experience a Bethany education graduate with the knowledge of not only who they are, but also Whose they are.  That firm footing allows them to enter into an ever-changing world knowing that their foundation is ever-present and solid.  It is also an experience that allows the whole family to be a part of the Bethany community, a community that is held together by the love, mercy and grace of our Lord Jesus.

We have been blessed with a wonderful staff who continues to guide each child to receive the education needed to be successful in the future.  We look forward to meeting with you about how any of our ministries may be of service to your family!


“Bethany is more than ‘just a school’. It is an extension of family. I am able to serve my country knowing that my children and family are secure in the Bethany Family. I am able to focus on my duty to defend our country because my family has a strong network available to them if needed.”
