The Beacon School offers an inquiry-based college preparatory program with technology and arts infused throughout the curriculum. Beacon emphasizes a rigorous well-rounded liberal arts education based on the principle of shared exploration and problem-solving. In assessments for graduation, students present performance-based projects to panels of teachers. Beacon offers extensive opportunities to participate in clubs, sports, community service and international travel.
Due to snow, all NYC Public schools are closed on Tuesday, January 27, 2015.
The following adjustments will be made to our assessment schedule:
On Friday, January 16 all freshmen students at Beacon will participate in the Middle East Peace Conference (MEPC), covering issues around ISIS, Saudi Iranian relations, nuclear weapons, refugees, and Israeli-Palestinian relations.
The MEPC will be hosted by our neighbors, John Jay College. The address is: the Westport Building, 500 W. 56th Street (corner of 56th Street and 10th Avenue). Students must arrive by 9:00 am. They will finish at 2:00 pm.
Students should bring a bag lunch for the day.
Take a chance! If you want to submit writing or artwork to Beacon Ink, the deadline is NEXT THURSDAY, January 15th. To submit work or ask questions, go to BeaconInk.weebly.com.
Remember that we evaluate all work anonymously, so the editors do not know the work is yours, unless it gets published.
What happens when American "nobility" becomes impoverished and deranged? Come help us connect the dots (and the dotty) by witnessing "Grey Gardens".

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 4:00PM and 7:30PM, each evening. A rotating cast allows you to see your friends in the leads and 28 others in support parts. Tickets on sale in the Beacon lobby during lunch times, or at the door just before performance.
$10 for Adults, $8 Students, Beacon faculty and staff free.
