Guidance

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive guidance program that will assist all students in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become effective students, responsible citizens, and the social-emotional skills to be global leaders. As lifelong learners, the ultimate goal for Beacon students will be to learn their value and worth, appreciate diversity, make self-directed and responsible decisions, effectively display empathy, and become resilient through short and long-term challenges. With collaborative and cooperative relationships, our program strives to meet the academic, personal/social, and post secondary needs of every student.
