Open Quote Beacon Academy helped my son get his credits up where the big public schools wanted nothing to do with him. Beacon Academy has been a blessing to our family and our son has a renewed interest in his education and completing school.

Thank you!

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
