Sean Koster

Sean Koster | Executive Director

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 | 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.

I am excited to partner with you to give our students what each and every one of them deserve—a top-quality, rigorous, well rounded education that will prepare them well for success in life. My personal mission is to always lead with the courage to do what’s best for children.

I am looking forward to meeting each one of you as the school year progresses. You will find that my door is always open and I am always here to support you in any possible way. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. I cannot wait to see all the success in store for the students, staff and families of Beacon Academy!
