Meet Our Administrators

Principal Sean Koster

Sean Koster | Principal

I’ve been honored to work at Beacon Academy Charter School since 2008. I am dedicated to working hard as an instructional leader because I believe high student achievement is a result of exceptional teaching in each classroom. I am dedicated to reflectively serving students and am resolved to allow my core values to guide my decisions and actions. I hold high expectations for myself, our staff, and our students. Through our open communication – built on earnest understanding, integrity, and listening – we can embrace inclusion, celebrate diversity, and build on the wonderful school culture and high levels of student achievement we enjoy at Beacon Academy.

Michael Reeder | Assistant Principal

I have been fortunate to serve students and families from an array of backgrounds throughout my educational career and now feel privileged to be a member of the community at Beacon Academy Charter School. With a culture committed to the holistic growth of children, students experience a challenging curriculum, develop personal and social responsibility through intentional character education and gain a global perspective through daily Spanish instruction. By supporting culturally relevant practices, fostering staff-student relationships, and understanding how our students’ cultural backgrounds shape who they are, we can make our learners feel they matter as we partner with families to achieve favorable results with their children.

Joseph Adams | Dean of Students

It has been my distinct pleasure to serve at Beacon Academy Charter School since March of 2017. My prior experience as a high school teacher and my childhood as the son of an educator have instilled in me a rewarding drive towards inquiry, as well as a thirst to unveil the mysteries of life. I believe schools function best when community/family-based, and it has been a joy to find that mirrored in Beacon's mission. The teachers at Beacon make each day count and put kids first. Our staff is filled with open hearts that value play, purposeful curriculum, healthy lifestyles, finding one's passion, dealing with stress/solving conflicts, and making positive human connections. We try and create a safe space for students to take academic risks, and we celebrate efforts as well as successes.
