Welcome to Bethesda International Academy

A Message From Principal Dembowski

teacherIt is with great pride that the organization of Bethesda International Academy has the honor and privilege of serving the West Rogers Park and its neighboring communities.  We are honored to open and invite you to join our Bethesda family, which has been a staple to the community for over 50 years and continues to grow.  Along with our existence, we have come to see the neighborhoods evolve and develop diversely over those years.  We too understand the importance of evolving along with our communities in order to reach and teach each student to reach their highest spiritual, academic, artistic, and athletic potential.  This makes for a community of accountability, sensitivity, encouragement, engagement, teamwork, and self-awareness needed to develop as 21stcentury leaders and learners.  Please join us, so that we may better the future of our children, community, and world.

If you would like to make an appointment to see our school, visit the classrooms, speak with the teachers or learn more about our curriculum at a specific level, please call the school office (773) 743-0800 and we will make the necessary arrangements.
