Beacon provides a way to live life without school.  We serve young people from all over Connecticut who come full or part-time to be part of our learning community.  We are for:

Youth ages 12 to 18 who

  • want to explore their own potential

  • seek more from their learning experience

  • are bold enough to choose a different path

  • look for authentic connections

Parents who

  • prioritize well-being and meaningful learning

  • want an alternative to mainstream school

  • prefer a flexible, non-coercive, supportive learning environment

  • are tired of life being harder than it has to be

  • believe in their child's potential
