Mission and Values Inclusion Mission and Values Innovation Mission and Values Independence Mission and Values Interdependence
We strive for a student body that is diverse and inclusive, respectful of all members of its immediate and global communities, empathetic and eager to be socially responsible. The Beacon Academy academic program is designed to be challenging, rigorous, engaging and creative. Students are expected to go beyond comprehension, to think out of the box and to incorporate learning from multiple disciplines and sources of information and inspiration. Students at Beacon Academy are encouraged to think and act independently, to be active architects of their own education, to push the boundaries of conventional wisdom, and to do so respectfully and responsibly. At Beacon Academy students are expected to reach outside of the traditional classroom to connect with experts in the community and to collaborate with students, teachers and researchers across the globe. It is a community school in the strongest sense, with partnerships across the educational spectrum.
