College is where life’s adventure truly begins.
For students who learn differently – those with diagnosed learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD and related conditions — that adventure can be tough. Frequently, they are asked to make do with a scattershot set of “accommodations” that are intended to level the playing field — but often leave gaps.
Beacon is the first accredited college offering four year degrees designed around the needs of students who learn differently. We offer both bachelor and associate degrees in an environment specifically created to help our students thrive and engineer amazing, abundant lives for themselves.
Our students’ success can be measured:
On-Time Graduation Rate
That’s Beacon’s 10-year average for students completing their bachelor degrees in four years.
That’s almost double the 10-year national average for ALL students (with and without an LD) of just 37.8% (source: NECS).
And it’s more than 10X the estimated 6% rate for students with diagnosed learning disabilities (source: NSER).
Nearly every Beacon alumnus transitions to graduate study or employment. Our graduates currently attend leading colleges and universities across the nation and work for some of the most recognized names in America. And this isn’t a chance occurrence; 83.5% is our 9-year average.
Our intensive 4-year career development model helps students focus on their futures from their freshman year. Starting with the Class of 2013, fully 100 percent of Beacon students gained invaluable hands-on experience through internships, work and job shadowing.
