ACSI Events

One benefit of being a member of the premier organization, Associated Christian Schools International (ACSI), is the ability to participate in the ACSI Student Activities Program. The goal of the program is “to encourage and inspire students toward a standard of excellence in leadership, communication, and performance by enhancing member Christian schools’ academic and fine arts programs.”

Through Bethany Christian School’s vibrant participation as a member school, our students are able to apply and develop skills necessary for confident Christian leadership. Each activity is planned to impact students’ educational and spiritual growth, encouraging them to be a testimony to the gospel of proclaiming Good News in Jesus Christ. Events also seek to provide opportunity for Christian fellowship and positive interaction between students and teachers of participating schools.

Our students participate at the school level and progress to the district and regional levels, being challenged as they progress by interaction with students of similar interests and abilities. The awards program for ACSI Student Activities affirms each participant’s individual effort while recognizing those whose skill and ability provide an inspiration and a challenge to excellence for all who participate.

We embrace these program objectives for our students:

    • Aid in the development of skills necessary for Christian leadership
    • Complement the learning process
    • Practice skills needed in order to be an effective communicator
    • Participate competitively in order to strengthen composure and confidence
    • Provide for a time of fun and fellowship with a larger community

While our Rocky Mountain District’s events may vary, generally we actively engage with these events:

    • Art Festival: Student submitted artwork is evaluated and awarded ribbons for recognition.
    • Creative Writing: Student submitted writing is evaluated and awarded for talent and inventiveness.
    • Desktop Publishing: Students create print projects in applications such as Word, Publisher, Pagemaker, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.
    • Math by Mail: Elementary and middle school students participate in reasoning and comprehension events at the school level.
    • Math Olympics: Elementary and middle school students participate in reasoning and comprehension events at the regional level.
    • Spelling Bee: Students progress through district, regional, and ultimately national spelling bee competition. (Many Bethany Christian School students have made it to regionals, and two have made it to nationals.)
    • Yearbook: Student yearbooks are evaluated and awarded based on design layout, theme, structure, copy, photography, font design and overall creativity.

We are proud of our school’s accomplishments in the various ASCI Events. If you are interested in being a part of our success, please call our office at (480) 752-8993 or email us at info@bethanychristianschool.org.
