Student Visit Day
WANT TO EXPERIENCE A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BEACON ACADEMY STUDENT?
We are so glad you have decided to apply to Beacon Academy! Choosing the right high school is an important process, and we believe prospective students should have the chance to experience a day at Beacon to determine whether the school could be the right fit. As such, we offer the opportunity for applied students to spend a day at Beacon shadowing a current student on one of several specially designated Student Visit Days beginning in October. Students who choose to participate in a Visit Day will spend a full day at Beacon shadowing classes and will have lunch (provided) with their host student. This shadow day is not mandatory but rather an option for interested students and families.
If you would like to take the opportunity to shadow a current Beacon student, please complete and submit your Application for Admission and application fee, making sure to indicate on your application that you would like to participate in a Student Visit Day. Once your application has been received, a member of the Admissions team will contact you to schedule a parent interview, student interview, student assessment, and student visit. Please note that students who choose to participate in a Student Visit Day will be assessed and interviewed on that same day. Student Visit Days will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE STUDENT VISIT DAY
Prospective students should arrive at Beacon at 8:30 am on the day of their scheduled visit. A member of our Admissions Team will greet visiting students and match them with a Beacon Student Ambassador. Our school day begins at 8:45 am with Advisory or Community Meeting. Visiting students will attend classes with their student host and receive a voucher to purchase a lunch from the Rotary Café located on Beacon’s campus in the Rotary Building. During the Student Visit Day, prospective students will meet with a member of the Admissions Team for the student interview and assessment. Students should be picked up from Beacon at 3:30 pm, the end of the school day. Please call the Admissions Office at 224-999-1177 if we can answer any questions about the Student Visit Day Experience. We look forward to meeting you!
