Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to the new school year at Beacon Hill Preparatory School. Beacon Hill is dedicated to the fundamental philosophy “The future belongs to those who prepare.” To achieve this goal, Beacon Hill fosters the development of every facet of each child. At Beacon Hill, the goal of schooling is to help each child grow into a knowledgeable, responsible adult who can find personal meaning and satisfaction in using his/her skills, talents, and creativity. This focus requires cognitive and intellectual, physical, aesthetic, social, emotional, moral, and spiritual development, and growth in a caring, supportive environment that enables each child to reach his/her maximum potential and feel pride in his/her accomplishments.
We have rules and expectations, structures which we feel improve the quality of life at Beacon Hill for all of us. Please review this Handbook so that you understand and appreciate them. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to voice them. Students, you will be held accountable for your actions in accordance with information given in this Handbook.
Please note that the School reserves the right to revise or amend this Handbook and the policies and procedures contained in it at any time. Significant changes will be distributed to students and parents as appropriate. Should you have any questions that are not addressed in the Handbook, contact your school principal.
Welcome and best wishes for an exciting, productive year.
Mrs. Susan Liss-Hyman, Executive Director
