APPLICATION PROCESS
 

1. Interested families should begin by filling out an online Inquiry Form to start receiving Beacon news and admissions information electronically. Please note that we do not accept applications for 12th grade.

 

2. To begin the application process, families will be asked to complete an Application for Admission online and submit it along with an application fee of $100. Once the application is received, the Admissions Office will contact you to schedule your student and parent interviews and the optional Student Visit Day.

 


3. In addition to the application form, families submit completed teacher and administrator recommendation forms and sign a Release of Information Authorization form to be given to the student’s current school. All materials should be returned to Beacon along with the student’s records from the last two academic years and most recent standardized test scores (if available). Further details about the application components will be provided upon establishing and signing in to your online account.
