Community Spirit



As we enter our fourth academic year (2017-18), we are fortunate to be in a position of strength and continued growth. In the fall of 2015, it was clear that we would soon outgrow our original home, and it became essential that Beacon embark on a major gifts initiative to secure our space at 1574 Sherman Avenue.


Gifts towards Beacon 2.0: The Building Fund allowed us to:

  • Secure a new physical space located in the heart of downtown Evanston that allows for Beacon’s continued growth and expansion
  • Secure architects and designers, and proceed with construction
  • Prepare the environment with the purchase of more equipment, furniture, and supplies
  • Provide budget relief for operational expenses


When we think of Beacon Academy, we think not of one family or one individual.  In the truest Montessori spirit, we think of a community. If you are interested in supporting Beacon’s continued growth with a financial contribution, please contact Renée M. Ruffing, Director of Advancement, at 224.999.1177 or by email.
