How It Works Students enrolled in Beacon Summer Academy’s Enrichment Camp select three courses to investigate in a four-week program based in their individual passions. In these project-based courses, Beacon’s dedicated faculty works closely with students in a hands-on setting, encouraging them to think deeply, engage creatively and grow as learners.
