Academics

At Beacon Prep, we believe that foundational literacy skills and meeting the individual needs of each of our students are two critical tools for ensuring college-readiness for all of our students.

KIPP Austin Beacon Prep

At Beacon Prep, we believe excellent instruction is fundamental to student achievement. We want to create a school where students are consistently achieving their college-ready growth goals on the MAP test, leaving KABP in the 3rd and 4th quartile on MAP, and achieving “Meets Grade Level” or above on the STAAR state assessments.

We work to achieve this through targeted instruction in science, writing, social studies, math and reading throughout each grade-level. Every student has intervention four times a week to work on curriculum at his or her level to push their academic success. Furthermore, we use weekly assessments to assess how students are doing and make plans to continue to push students above and beyond.
