Beacon’s staff and student body seek to cultivate a manner and spirit in harmony with the mission and goals of this school. They desire to have a positive influence on others and to maintain a constructive, cooperative attitude.


The spiritual emphasis of preparing young people for eternity and our commitment to equip them to serve Christ within the context of the larger mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church distinguish our school system from that of public schools.


Participation in School Programs

Once accepted into Beacon Christian School, it is expected that all students, with the support of their families, will participate in the total school program, including worship, physical education, music programs, outreach programs, and other special programs, as well as all aspects of the required curriculum.

Outdoor School
All fifth and sixth grade students have the opportunity to take part in a five-day outdoor school at Camp MiVoden, a Seventh-day Adventist camp on Hayden Lake, north of Coeur d’Alene.

Ski School/Winter Activities Programs
Every winter Beacon offers a snow ski program to students in the fourth grade and above. Students in K — grade 3 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The program includes car pooling, lift ticket, lessons, and ski rental if needed.

A day of ice-skating or another recreational activity is offered to those who don't participate in the ski program.

Parent's Commitment

We believe that a child’s education is the responsibility of the parents. It is very important, therefore, that parents are involved in the functions of the school in the following ways:

  • Volunteer to help at Beacon.
  • Believe in Beacon Christian School and support it.

Parents are expected to donate a minimum of twenty (20) hours of volunteer service time per family during the school year. The purpose of this is two-fold: one is to keep parents involved in their child’s day, and the second is to help contain costs.
