Our sons, daughters, grandchildren, nephews,  nieces, neighbors and friends - - our children attend this Charter.  We believe that this Charter School is a beacon of opportunity for our little ones to learn in a safe and learning environment. Our children are learning a Classical Education similar to our American Founding Fathers.

Many of the parents have amazing testimonials of how each child has been enriched. Progress and growth is not limited to educational and personal growth.  Some aspects like "feeling secure" and "feeling loved and embraced" cannot be measured on a test. Some parents have special needs children. Some kids experienced bullying issues from other public schools.  Some just chose the school. Whatever the reason, each parent chose Beacon Classical Academy. Both the parents and children are glad to be here. Beacon serves her purpose and parents travel from varying School Districts to participate in this wonderful program.

The school was cited for violations, which Beacon has addressed in a nearly 300 pg document (Feb 2017 and subsequent submittals (April 2017).

  • Last Update - Appeal Pending

  • Update 4/13 Public Hearing was filled including overflow. Speakers from all spectrums spoke with 99% in favor of Beacon.

We can only hope on top of hope, submit documents as required and move forward from here.
  • Our impending April 12th hearing allows the public to be heard prior to the consideration and vote to REVOKE OUR CHARTER!!!!   THIS PETITION is also an avenue for which your voice can be heard.

  • We need the District's approved acceptance of documents and Action Plan to correct all issues on a timely manner.
  • We  need open, supportive dialogue with the District with respect to issues on a line by line basis, which is not clearly established.
  • We need the full public support to keep school open, especially up through April 12th hearing by signing petition, attendance, or have direct communication with District.
