Welcome to Beacon Academy of Arts and Sciences!
The journey to find the ideal educational environment for your child can be a daunting task. So, we are delighted that your curiosity has led you to visit our website. Although these pages will provide you with valuable information, I encourage you to visit us and experience for yourself what makes us distinctive.
We are a small coeducational institution that serves students from Pre-K through fifth grade. We offer a liberal arts education that follows the traditional American course of study to a diverse group of Scholars. At Beacon, we seek to educate the mind and the heart. As a result, we make teaching and learning visible, relevant and transcendent because we understand that what we teach, why we teach, and how we teach matters.
Our faculty is composed of masterful and committed educators who serve as facilitators. They believe in the transformational power of learning that typifies the strong relationships between teachers and students. Through deliberate, innovative, data-driven and reflective practices, Scholars are challenged to develop intellectual autonomy, curiosity, courage, tenacity, humility and be prepared to confidently walk into whatever’s next.
Our noble goal is to promote a prosocial and self-transcendent purpose for learning. We want to re-imagine a school where Scholars develop a strong belief in themselves and the power of community. Hence, they are empowered to cultivate the strength to follow the paths that inspire them and to courageously raise their voices for social justice, both of which encapsulate our motto “Act with Courage.”
With reverence, we certainly hope that you will make Beacon, “The place to begin.”
