Beacon Programs supplement the school day and nurture the skills necessary to be successful in life and school by providing, to name a few, academic support, athletic teams, leadership building, vocational workshops, etc. 

Beacon closes the gap between schools' and communities' needs and brokers strong partnerships.

Collaborating with the community and school district the Bayview beacon achieves positive outcomes for our youth, families and communities. 

The Beacon provides students the opportunity to grow into their huge futures. The teen center provides them with a safe and relaxing environment to focus on having fun and spending time with their friends. The case managers help students navigate high school and provide them with tools to balance their academics and their personal life. The Beacon provides students with job opportunities and application support. The Beacon staff supports the students and are a part of the positive school community at Burton High School.
