Through an in-depth understanding of adolescent brain science, Beacon Academy enriches and prepares students for life through an empowering environment that fosters independence, choice, and curiosity. Beacon Academy holistically addresses adolescent needs, focusing not only on academics, but also on nurturing imagination, creativity, and ethical development. Beacon students are the agents of their own education. We prepare our students for the intellectual, academic, social, and emotional challenges they will face in life, whether they choose a college, a vocation, or a truly unique path through the greater world around them.

Beacon’s curriculum embodies the principle of “learning by doing” by affording students abundant opportunities for hands-on investigation, student-centered discussions, experimentation, interdisciplinary projects, experiential learning, and community engagement.

To simply memorize facts, learn history as unrelated to the arts and sciences, and ignore the development of personality denies our young adults the opportunity to prepare for life. Our primary aim is to prepare all students to succeed in a future that has yet to be defined, with self-confidence, self-awareness, adaptability, and a curiosity for lifelong learning.
