We present a sixth order finite difference method for the two-point boundary value problem ${y^{(4)}} + f(x,y) = 0$, $y(a) = {A_0}$, $y(b) = {B_0}$, $y\prime (a) = {A_1}$, $y\prime (b) = {B_1}$. In the case of linear differential equations, our difference scheme leads to five-diagonal linear systems.
