Beacon College was recognized in a new national ranking in April as a Top 30 college for students with learning disabilities.
On its list that included the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Arizona, University of California-Irvine, and the University of Connecticut, College Consensus ranked Beacon College No. 27 on its list of “30 Best Colleges for Students with Learning Disabilities.”
“What you will find here is an empowering list that suggests the future is diverse and there is a seat at the table for everyone, no matter how you learn,” according to the introduction to the ranking list.
College Consensus, an online college ranking and review aggregator, generates its rankings by “combining the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web,” which the organization says “provides the most accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school’s reputation and quality available anywhere.”
These sources include Forbes, Money, U.S. News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, Wallethub, and Washington Monthly.
The College Consensus ranking continues an impressive streak of national esteem by America’s first accredited baccalaureate institution dedicated to educating primarily neurodiverse students with learning disabilities, ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning differences.
Last year, both BestValueSchools.com and Peterson’s, a leading educational services company dedicated to furthering education after high school and beyond, ranked Beacon College No. 1 on their lists of best colleges or universities for students with learning disabilities. Meanwhile, Great Value Colleges GreatValueColleges.net rated the nonprofit Leesburg, Fla.-based liberal arts college No. 3 on its list of “America’s Top 50 Colleges for Students with Disabilities.”
