On Wednesday, April 5, the Beacon School will host its Spring Open House with sessions at 9:30am and 6:30pm. Prospective families and community members are invited to learn more about the school’s individualized model for students in grades 3-12. Centrally located in Stamford’s historic Hubbard Heights neighborhood at 111 W North St, Stamford, CT 06902, Beacon features an enriched educational program with small class sizes, a 3:1 student-teacher ratio, and an inspirational mission to help students “find their own light”.

“Families come to Beacon because they are looking for a school where their child can truly thrive as an individual,” says Head of School John Manganiello. “From our personalized academic, enrichment, and support programs to our nurturing, student-centered environment, we celebrate kids for who they are while challenging them to realize their full potential.”

With endless opportunities to explore topics outside the curriculum, engage in hands-on learning, and work creatively and collaboratively, Beacon can be a revelation for students who are disengaged or underchallenged in traditional classrooms. Its academic model encompasses a range of needs to help students build skills while keeping even the most advanced learners challenged. Enrichment programs abound; students design their individualized schedules by selecting from a menu of activities to complement their core academics, including theater, robotics, creative writing, computer programming, scientific research, visual and performing arts, and much more.

Beacon welcomes students who break the mold, including those who need access to above-grade-level material in areas of strength as well as targeted support programs in areas of weakness. One common focus is executive functions and study skills. According to Mr. Manganiello, “I meet many bright, curious students who love learning but struggle to plan, organize, and prioritize the countless tasks required in classrooms today. At Beacon, these students benefit from our unique combination of strengths-based education and skills-based coaching.”
