Beacon Covid Update for 2020/2021 Program
Our goal is to be able to have an in-person program where all who would like to participate are able to do so safely. Therefore, we are adjusting the timing, location, and price of our program for the 2020/2021 academic year.
Time and Location
Beginning in October
Session Dates: Oct. 3, Nov. 7, Dec. 5, Feb. 6, Mar. 6, Apr. 3, May 1
Service day in January: data and timing TBA

1:00 - 2:30 pm 8th-grade program

At both Cedar Wood and Bayridge, all staff will be wearing masks and maintaining six-feet distance. Participants are also asked to wear masks, particularly while indoors.
Mentoring, for now, will occur at another time each month, either on Zoom or in person.
We also offer an online-only option which includes the ability to participate in the speaker portion as well as individual mentoring over Zoom.
Updated Price: $300 for all 7 sessions
We do have a limited number of scholarships that we award on the basis of financial need.
If the Beacon board decides to cancel in person sessions due to public health concerns, fees will be prorated accordingly.
