What is a Charter School?

A Tuition-Free Public School Serving Grades K-8


Our Mission at Beacon Academy is to provide Twin Cities families with a proven, rigorous, and content-rich curriculum, integrated with sequential Spanish language instruction. We are committed to providing a results-driven, small learning community, built around a culture of positive character development and committed parental involvement.

Beacon Academy is a K-8 school that is committed to building second language proficiency, while helping students master writing, reading, math, history, geography, and science. Music and arts experiences are very important at Beacon and are often done in collaboration with the academic curriculum. Physical education and outdoor experiences keep both bodies and minds active and healthy.

The backbone of Beacon’s character education is the Responsive Classroom curriculum. Each day begins with a morning meeting to help foster positive peer relationships and to learn how to solve conflicts appropriately. Each month, there is an assembly where one grade level is in charge of promoting a particular character trait.
