Parents, Students, and Families:

Bethel Apostolic Academy is excited to resume school this fall!

Our private school classes sizes are smaller, which makes us unique as compared to a public school. We have plans to protect our students and staff while continuing to do our part relating to COVID-19.

Covid-19 has placed an extremely unique impact on our society at large. Bethel Apostolic Academy wants to reassure you that we promote behaviors that help reduce the spread… such as:

  • Splitting our largest class on campus into two separate classes: The first and second grade class will no longer be a combo class but will be separated into individual classes. This will limit all our class sizes on campus to a minimum.
  • Hand Hygiene and Respiratory Etiquette: Teach and reinforce handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and increase monitoring to ensure adherence among students and staff.
  • Encourage staff and students to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Used tissues will be thrown in the trash and hands washed immediately with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cloth Face Coverings welcome.
  • Maintaining Healthy Environments: Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces (e.g., playground equipment, door handles, sink handles, drinking fountains)
  • We ask that families keep students home if they are sick or have a fever.

Thank you for your continued support during this time in our community, nation, and world. BAA trusts in God and that He has the whole world in His hands. We are praying for health, safety, peace, comfort and renewed strength through Jesus Christ and His Spirit.

BAA Administration

Parents, Students, Friends and Family:

Bethel Apostolic Academy is proud to celebrate ALL our students’ hard work and achievement in their studies this school year. Great pride and awe glistens from the proverbial face of BAA because of the progress, improvement, and academic achievement of every pupil in our care. BAA administration, faculty, and staff count it a great honor to have been blessed to work with each student and family, occupying a small yet significant role in their future. It is a double honor that parents entrust us and believe in this institution/ministry to fill that role.

COVID-19 has placed an extremely unique and unprecedented impact on society at large. Bethel Apostolic Academy commends each of our families for stepping up to the plate, for persevering, for working with your student(s) to achieve their goals, and for continuing to support BAA in consideration of the difficult decisions made. Thank you for choosing to be a part of the BAA Family; we would not exist without dedicated, loyal families.

I would like to personally congratulate each of the following: our Kindergarten Graduates on all their achievement; our elementary students who have completed another year of learning; and a great big “wahoo” to all five of our eighth grade graduates for making it across the “stage” of Junior High! I am proud of each student and love being a part of your personal and academic development.

BAA would cease to exist without its faithful staff, faculty, and volunteers! Thank you, Sis. Shalom Carillo! Thank you, Sis. Amanda Rodriguez! Thank you, Sis. Lacey Fields! Thank you, Sis. Adrienne Lopez! Thank you, Sis. Emilee Mullings! Thank you, Sis. Deann Alspaw! Thank you, Sis. Kelsey Jeffers! Thank you, Bro. John Deyarmond! Thank you, Sis. Stephany Winkler! A great BIG Thank You to Sis. Angela Ruiz, our site-supervisor who pours herself into this place every single day without hesitation or compulsion. She embodies burden and passion for student learning and academic achievement. Her love for BAA and its patrons is beyond noticeable; it is commendable!

A special thanks to C.L.A.S. for your continued support and leadership of BAA.

Thank you to every volunteer! We could not have done it without you! Thank you, again, parents for investing in your greatest asset on earth: your children.

Blessings,

Chad Leon Bradley

The Administration and Staff are continuing to pray for each of our school families and friends during these unprecedented times. Bethel Apostolic Academy will remain closed through the rest of the school year per Kern County Superintendent of Schools. Only three weeks of school remain in our calendar! May 21st is the last day of school! Together, we CAN do this! BAA teachers will continue to work with students on a weekly basis and be available for parent support as well.

May Tuition will be discounted by 50% in consideration of financial burdens on families.

BAA is still striving to continue to pay Full-Time Teachers to provide a distance learning/independent study education and will continue to do so as finances permit.

Details on Kindergarten Graduation and Academic Achievement Night/8th Grade Graduation will be determined over the next week or so. Depending on the limitations of gatherings per State recommendations, we will celebrate and commemorate the accomplishments of all of our students whether creatively or otherwise.

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to Bro. Bradley.

The Administration and Staff are praying for each of our school families and friends during these trying times. We know many are affected in a variety of ways by the COVID-19 Pandemic, some more than others. Our prayer and hope is that people take the opportunity to give, uplift, strengthen, support and love each other. We also pray people will turn to God for comfort, peace, joy and hope in these times. He is as close as the mention of His name (Psalm 145:18; Acts 17:27; John 14:16; Philippians 4:7; 1 Peter 1:8; 1 John 4:8; Matthew 22:36-40).

BAA Administration

Welcome

The administration and faculty want to WELCOME you to Bethel Apostolic Academy (BAA). BAA is a private school that is dedicated to training young men and women in spiritual ministry, instruction with right thinking, good conduct and clean living in light of Godly principles.

A phrase common to us is “A man and woman passed this way blessed of God.” Rev. & Mrs. I.H. Terry started the school in 1972 with a determination to train children in a Christian environment. This couple possessed a vision for the Word of God and the vision continues today. The need for a Christian school is more vital in today’s society than it was in 1972. Our prayer is that parents grasp this revelation and the school will continue to flourish under the leadership of the BAA School Board, Bishop Leon Frost, & Pastor Kevin Bradford. BAA is an extension of the ministry of Greater Bakersfield’s First Pentecostal Church.

Academics

Bethel Apostolic Academy educates students in grades K-8th with the A Beka Curriculum. Additionally, BAA promotes an excellent high-school pathway which includes the use of our NEW first-class Learning Center. BAA and A Beka are unashamedly Christian and traditional in the approach to education. A Beka keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. Plus, the materials reflect the sensible theory that is firmly anchored in practical application.

Graduation

Our graduation ceremonies are very personal and focused on each student’s achievements. Each graduating class puts together a program that portrays their special events and learning. Awards are given for A & B honor roll students, Principal Award, and Outstanding Student.

Nondiscriminatory Policy

Bethel Apostolic Academy/First Pentecostal Church admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
