July 10 – 29, 2022
At Beacon College, we believe that education should be life-changing — and summer learning is no exception! Our summer programs are about self-discovery, skills development and confidence building. We promise students a great time as they learn to become better learners while forging new friendships with fellow students from across the country. Most importantly, all of our summer program students get to experience what it’s like to live — and learn — on a college campus.
Our summer program helps college-bound high school juniors and seniors and recent graduates who learn differently build the skills, confidence and preparation they need to successfully transition from high school. Students better understand their learning differences, recognize early stumbling blocks and know what they need to succeed in their first year of college.
2022 Program Options
Summer for Success
Our core summer program offers a variety of courses that connect student interests with meaningful preparation for college. Students build their college readiness skills through fun, focused classes, structured trips and activities, and real experience on a college campus. Check out this year’s courses >
The Imagination Experience
This track takes advantage of our location in Central Florida to explore the history of Disney and its impact on our culture and economy, focusing both on the four Orlando theme parks and Disney’s movie productions. Students build their academic skills through Disney-themed research, writing, reading comprehension, and critical thinking.
This expanded “Imagination” program looks at Disney and much more – exploring the culture of escapism through not only theme parks, but attractions of all sizes. Students learn to think more critically and abstractly about the world of tourism, hospitality, and sociology through excursions, behind-the-scenes tours, and thematic guest speakers.
