Annual Fund

We Appreciate Your Support


As an independent school, Beacon Academy relies on the philanthropic support of our entire community. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of each child’s education, and we look to our families and friends, our faculty and staff, our grandparents, and our local neighbors to help with budget relief through donations to the Annual Fund. These tax-deductible gifts ensure that we can retain the best faculty and programming available and provide tuition assistance to those in need.


While gifts over the past three years have ranged in size from $20 to $12,000, a gift at any level is truly impactful. Please do what you can and support Beacon today!


We are proud to announce that Beacon’s Annual Fund achieved 100% participation from our parents, board, and faculty in our first two years, and 96% participation this past academic year. What a huge accomplishment and statement of belief. Thank You!
