At BEAS Academy we believe that knowledge is power and that character matters. Reading, math, and science, while very important, are not the only things that children should learn in school. An education is meant to create successful people and form the citizens that are the foundation of our society. We make the responsibility to transform children into young adults as our mission. The BEAS Academy elementary school is based on the principles of respect, integrity, and responsibility. We are guided by these principles and are confident that they form the foundation of a strong academic education.
BEAS Academy’s challenging curriculum encourages students to explore various educational, creative, and social opportunities. Our students will be challenged to experience new things; to develop their interests and discover their strengths in a safe and supportive environment. And they will be expected to work hard and diligently to hone their skills and expand their boundaries in a school culture that promotes responsibility, independence, and self-reliance.
Arts and Music
Our Art Program focuses on teaching children to create and appreciate art. Our art program offers a time for children to express their individuality, dreams and ideas. Art is a fun and enjoyable way to engage children of many different learning abilities.
We have discovered that children’s academics improve when arts are included as an integral part of their education. Children develop the individual skills to create, self-evaluate, and finalize their art creation. We teach children how to achieve project goals, and utilize their time and materials well.
- ART helps children think globally and grasp abstract concepts.
- Learn many intangible life skills through the arts and art appreciation.

Music is fun and engaging; and, most importantly, a confidence boost.
Surveys show that kids who take part in after-school music sessions, for a couple of hours a week, end up becoming better team players. After-school music programs build confidence and nurture teamwork in children.

BEAS ACADEMY parent workshops are designed as added value for the parents of our students as a way to encourage parent engagement in the educational process. We strongly believe that kids advance faster academically when they are involved with their parents lives and when parents take strong interest in their children’s education. We also understand, however, that modern life pulls parents in many directions and compromises the time they have to teach life lessons. Our parent/education workshops are meant to help parents get maximum results in their limited time. Every workshop is presented in an approachable manner that includes demonstrations that share strategies and effective tools to make more everyday moments into educational moments.
