Help Us Keep
The Promise

Over the course of their lives, many people with learning differences – from ADHD to dyslexia to autism spectrum disorder – devise workarounds to navigate a system that seems to assume that we all learn the same way. 

Yet, at Beacon College, we embrace young people with learning differences and follow through on our PROMISE to set them on a course to pursue worthy work and an abundant life.

For Our future

Through our $12 million campaign, we will further fulfill our commitment to providing a distinct learning environment where our students’ life stories are written: discovering the joy of learning, making good friends, developing self-confidence and gaining a vision for their future.  Click here to learn more about the campaign.

Scholarship Endowment

For many of our students, financial assistance is necessary to make their dream of an undergraduate education a reality. By raising $2 million for our student scholarship endowment, more students will have access to an education and experience that is truly transforming lives.

A Message From the President

Building Our Future, together

“A gift to the campaign is a selfless act. Many of our students have only known second. We want them in their undergraduate years to have first and, in doing so, we want them to have the best possible academic program and best facilities. We want them to have a true community. And we want them to be prepared to go out, be independent, and participate in worthy work. Help us continue the pioneering work that is elevating and changing lives. Help us keep the promise.”

– Dr. George J. Hagerty | Beacon College President
