Professional Educators

Educators Meeting at ConferenceAs professionals assisting students with the college search process we know how critical it is for you to understand which colleges and universities best serve the individual needs of a broad range of student profiles. For professional educators working with students with learning disabilities, ADHD and other learning differences the college search process can prove frustrating for both parents and students.

Often parents have expectations and students have aspirations that may not result in an appropriate college match. As Beacon College is a College totally focused on serving students with learning differences, sometimes students are reluctant to consider a College with such a mission. Educators consistently ask us how they can better present the College as a “best college option”…We say you only need to meet our students, spend time with our faculty and staff, and most importantly review Beacon’s outstanding student outcomes to know emphatically that something very astounding is happening at Beacon College…

Beacon College, a fully accredited college, has been quietly and consistently achieving the highest graduation, retention and job placement rates for students with learning differences nationwide.  These students come to us not yet ready to fully engage at a more traditional college or university.  However, even after one semester at Beacon, the student’s begin a transformational journey to confidently and successfully embrace their academic studies and career goals.

Professional educators are a primary source of student referrals to Beacon College. Educators visit our campus throughout the year to familiarize themselves with the “Beacon Difference.”   We invite you to visit our Leesburg campus and ask you to refer to our website for upcoming special educator visit programs.

If you are a high school educator and wish to request a visit for one of our staff to come to your school to speak with educators, students and/or parents we will do our best to accommodate your request.  Beacon College recruits nationally and in any recruitment year we visit close to 500 schools across the country.

To discuss your student’s needs prior to referral, please contact us.
