Beacon Academy of Nevada Reviews

Before attending Beacon Acadamy I had given up on ever achieving my high school diploma. I was over a year behind and saw no other option but to drop out. But with the guidance of my mother, she found Beacon Academy of Nevada. Upon entering Beacon you feel like family, and every teacher/staff there actually care about your success. I would receive daily updates and guidance, which kept me from getting discouraged. Teachers there I feel went above and beyond compared to what teachers at my previous public high school did. Without Beacon Academy of Nevada, I would not be where I am today, which is on the path to a Bachelors of Science Nursing Degree. I would not hesitate to recommend friends and family to this amazing school.

Beacon Academy is a great online school. The teachers want to know your progress, and how you are keeping up with the work. There is a lot of opportunity to become friends with other students with club activities, online discussions, and even a Beacon mine craft server. Especially with students who work or take care of their families Beacon is the right place for you. Because this is an online school a lot of the work you have to do is on your own. However most teachers are accessible via student email. Students even have the option to stay at school to get work done. There are teachers that will help when you are at school. If you have problems getting access to a computer or internet Beacon will do whatever they can to help. Overall, this is the best online school Nevada has to offer.
I came to Beacon late in my junior year because my mental health status was low but improving and normal public school was making my conditions worse. I'm able to work at my own pace and recovery from my mental disorder. The teachers and staff have been nothing less than the best. Being an online school, Beacon offers on campus help and tutoring if needed. Attending school at Beacon was a pivotal part of what saved my life; now as a senior, overall, I am on the right track to succeeding in life.
