Careers at Beacon

The Beacon 10-Year Model

Beacon Academy closes the opportunity gap for a cadre of Boston’s bright and determined students. Striving for educational equity using a lens of social justice, we help our students create life changing opportunities as they build lives of purpose, community, and impact. Our 10-Year Model begins with our Academy Year – a 14-month term filled with academic rigor, personal development, and exciting life experiences – followed by diverse support programs for our alumni throughout high school, college, and early careers. Not only do we prepare students for futures of curiosity and well-being, but we also stay connected with them, offering resources to promote success from their first day at Beacon into their first careers. We value our community and strive for a sense of belonging at Beacon. To achieve that, we honor each person's dignity and humanity, bring a learning mindset to our work, encourage honest and direct feedback, and look for joy even in challenging spaces. We invite you to join us in upholding these core values of Beacon.

Our community consists of students, alumni, parents, caregivers, faculty, staff, Board members, volunteers, corporate and community partners, and donors who bring our mission to life and sustain our robust 10-year journey from Academy year to career for over 300 students and alumni. We are committed to embracing educational equity as a common goal and are grateful to our community for helping us work to achieve it.
