Alpha Beacon Christian School CLOSED 06-2014 4

School uses Pensicola Christian College ABEKA cirriculum which is known to be very agressive. Each assignment builds, so students must keep up daily. Teachers are dedicated to see that work is done DURING class time. Agree with other poster, no perks...no gym, no sports (except volleyball), no language. Tuition is reasonable but few additional fees so read carefully. Strong bible base school ran as a family business (administrators are relatives). Committed teachers who know children by name

A great school. Too bad they are leaving the campus that they are in now. My child's confident has blossomed tremendously in the school. However, if you are looking for a school with "extras", this is not for you. For about $800 a month, they give you a strong foundation on the basic academic subjects (math, science, language art, history, spelling). No music, foreign language, technology, a little bit of art. However, my child has gotten very strong in all subjects. Tests are not a scary monster anymore. There were many mini quizzes before a big test. It's as if she is ready for test any time. She only spent about 1 hour doing homework everyday. She has tons of times for other enrichement programs or just hang out and chill with us. All projects are child's friendly and realistic. My husband and I did not have many "family projects". She can handle all project mostly by herself.

Among the finest Christian private schools in California. Very strong academically. Alpha Beacon is also located in a beautiful neighborhood, and has a very nice campus.

My daughter just finished her 1st year of kindergarden here and loved it !!! She has really blossomed as did all the children this year. She loved her teacher and it was a pleasure to witness the level of respect all the children had for their teacher. The teachers and staff really give it their all and boy, Is it noticeable. The kids have really grown and are very respectful to classmates, teachers, and the staff. And have had a well rounded curriculum. I could not be happy and I highly reccommend it to any parent considering Alpha Beacon

The high school and junior high provide excellent academics for students who are willing to apply themselves. The staff are qualified and caring. Elective courses and extracurricular activities provide great opportunities for student growth and development, individually and together with other students as a group. submitted by an alumnus

My kids LOVE it at Alpha Beacon. They actually look forward to coming to school everyday and that makes this a 5- STAR place! The teachers know each student and their families personally. It's a very familiy-friendly atmosphere. Solid academics. Many of their graduates have gone on to top universities. They have a variety of school meets for the students to compete with other schools in the area. Alpha Beacon seems to win a lot of the ribbons after their math, spelling, art, writing, speech competitions. This school has a great balance of academics, Christian morals, student involvement, and teaching your child some valuable life lessons. Definitely a thumbs up!!!!!

Good elementary school. Need to improve their junior/high school bec. turnover of dean is too high. Sometimes there are favoritism esp if your parents are part of the administrators at this school. and other students get left out and don't get the heads up first.

Beacon Christian High is fantastic. They walk the walk and talk the talk. The teachers give the students the attention they need. For a small school it offers a lot and has a great track record of getting kids into good colleges. It is a great place for a teenager to develop and mature and get a great education with a solid curriculum.

Alpha Beacon Christian School is an incredible academic institution. We had our boy there for two years and by the end of kindergarten he knew how to read and write (in cursive). They really welcome you and make you feel part of the family. They know you and your children by your first name. They emphasize children to treat each other with love and respect. Their religious foundations are the best, would not want them any other way. If you want your children to academic and spiritually succeed, send them to ABC. We would consider coming back in the future and know that we will be welcomed with open arms.
