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!  We take our evaluation process seriously, but it is equally important that students have the opportunity to experience life 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 shadowing a current Beacon 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 your Application for Admission making sure to indicate that you would like to participate in the Student Visit Day. Once your application has been received, a member of the Admissions team will contact you to schedule your parent interview, student interview, student assessment, and student visit, preferably all on the same date.
