Beacon Offers Measurable Outcomes
The greatest proof of the impact of Beacon’s educational opportunities can be found in the success of our students and alumni:
Four-Year Graduation Rate
Our focus on student success means that three out of every four students enrolling at Beacon graduates in just four years— compared to the national six-year graduation rate of 59% among full-time students attending a private college or university.
Beacon Graduates Employed or Pursuing Continuing and Graduate Study
Many of our recent graduates continue their academic studies at leading colleges and universities nationwide; others immediately enter the workforce upon graduation.
Beacon graduates gain experience through internships and/or professional work experience
Beacon’s intensive 4-year career development model ensures students focus on the future starting in freshman year. Fully 100% of Beacon’s Class of 2013 gained invaluable hands-on experience through internships and/or professional work experience.
