ChessSulkowski7Whether it is competing on the football field or vying for the prime role in the drama club, Bethesda sets the stage for boys to partake in activities outside the classroom that help them develop into thriving young men.

Entering into the 2014-2015 school year, Bethesda Academy will be joining the South Carolina Independent Schools Association (SCISA) for competitive team and individual sports and activities. Joining SCISA is allowing the opportunities for our students to be endless. Team sports will include football, basketball, baseball, track and field and golf. Student-athletes can also compete as individuals in wresting, swimming – or even bowling! Click here to visit our athletic page.

Since its inception in 2009, our Chess Team has been successful in local, regional, and national competition.  The team travels to a different location each April for the US National Chess Competition.  For the 2012-13 academic year, the Chess Team returned from the US Super Nationals with a 14th Place finish!

Through the course of the school year, students choose various activities that they want to participate in weekly and learn more about—outdoor club (explores the 650 acres of Bethesda), art and calligraphy, drama, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, development of games through code, and junior and senior seminars that help guide students to the correct college and career path.
