Yes, incredible as it may sound, there are only four more weeks left until the first day of school on Monday, August 25, 2014! At Beacon Academy, Nevada’s premier online high school, we have been working all summer long to prepare for the new school year. Additionally, there are a number of exciting changes happening as well.
One area we have been working at is preparing the Measured Academic Progress (MAP) benchmark assessments for students. Beacon Academy students, both new and returning are required to sign up and come in to the Las Vegas and Reno offices to take these benchmark assessments. The primary assessment window is August 4-15. These assessments will help the school identify where students stand in the math and reading skills and help Beacon Academy staff develop individualized intervention and enhancement programs. These programs are designed to prepare students to successfully navigate state-mandated high stakes tests.
Over the summer, two exciting changes have taken place at Beacon Academy. First, the school has hired many more full-time teachers and mentors to help students in all their course work. Second, the school will start of the new academic year with a new principal. Our new principal, Mrs. Tambre Tondryk will bring a wealth of experience to the table which will directly help students successfully earn their free online high school diploma.
Upcoming in August will be a series of Open House events and the week before school, all Beacon Academy students, looking to attend their free online charter high school, will need to attend an orientation. Even if you are a returning student, the orientation is a must as things do change and we want you be up to speed on school policies and procedures. Also be on the lookout for upcoming student activities to kick of the new school year.
Beacon Academy continues to grow as more and more students learn about our unique style of helping our students earn their free accredited high school diploma. These students come to us to take their high school classes online. Many of the students are tired of the “drama” at their brick and mortar school and want to focus their time and effort on earning their high school diploma online without these types of distractions.
