At Beacon we know how boys learn best. It’s that simple. Using decades of gender research on boys' well-being, Beacon is designed to help boys excel in and love school. Freed from the social pressures of a coeducational environment, boys in single-sex schools enjoy healthier social, emotional, and cognitive development. With a goal of enrolling 40% students of color and providing aid to 30% of our students, Beacon builds a community rich with diversity in every sense. Beacon blends the best from established independent schools with the evidence-based innovations from other models to create the perfect balance for boys to succeed. At Beacon, we know that happy scholars who are engaged with their learning are better prepared for college and beyond.

The best thing about going to a boys’ school is
that you’re free to be yourself all the time.
