Experiences outside the classroom are as equally integral to our students’ growth as are classroom academics.

Whether studying at the MFA, traveling to Washington, DC or watching a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank by The New Repertory Theater Company, students learn that intellectual inquiry takes many forms. Beacon Academy students talk with adults from all backgrounds through participation in our open houses, our luncheon speaker series, the secondary school coaches program, and fundraising events with our larger donors.

In everything we do, Beacon Academy aims to inspire our students to become active, contributing, and leading members of their high school communities.

Co-curricular activities during the academic year include: cultural field trips (an evening at the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a visit to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, an event at the Consulate General of Israel); physical activities (running, yoga, squash at the Winsor School, swim lessons with Charles River Aquatics); overnight travel (varies depending on the year but past years have included trips to D.C., Vermont, NYC, and Martha’s Vineyard); community service learning (a weekly reading buddies program with the FJECC preschoolers, several service days); and many other activities!
