About Beacon Academy

Established in 2009, the Beacon Academy is an independent, non-profit, co-educational secondary school that provides a four-year college preparatory program to children of all nationalities, ages 14-18.

The Beacon Academy strives to be a learning community in which the collaborative search for understanding fosters thoughtful discourse, knowledge of self and the world community, and personal relationships that enhance moral character, mutual respect, and compassion.  The Academy trusts in the strength and optimism of its students and their capacity to change the world.

Our students, who are between the ages of 14-18, embark on a high school journey that offers a well-rounded academic program and vibrant student life lineup to prepare them for life in college and beyond. The Beacon Academy applies Discussion-Based Learning in many of its classes: a teaching method that encourages all students to speak up and take responsibility for their education. 

In partnership with the Beacon School in Taguig, the Beacon Academy is the first and only educational institution in the Philippines to receive authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in Switzerland to deliver full continuum of the IB curriculum from K-12. 
We are situated inside a nine-hectare property just 40-minutes south of Metro Manila.

To date, this small junior and senior high school maintains an academically challenging environment yet mantains a student-centered and cozy learning community. Good record for college preparatory education.

The teachers are great and more than qualified. It's also expanding, building more facilities. All it needs are more students!

Looking for a cozy international school, the IB kind? This is it! Small class size ensure quality and personalized learning. No worries about transpo-- there's a shuttle for students to & from Beacon School Taguig.

The Beacon Academy is a private international college-preparatory school in Biñan, Laguna, Philippines that offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. It is a sister school of the Beacon School in Taguig, Metro Manila. The Beacon Academy brands itself as "an international school rooted in Filipino culture and ethos.” The Beacon Academy was founded in 2009 by architect Leandro Locsin Jr., son of the late National Artist of the Philippines for Architecture Leandro Locsin, and his wife Mailin Paterno-Locsin. The school was established to serve as the high school extension of its sister school, the Beacon School, located along Chino Roces Avenue in Taguig. According to Leandro Locsin Jr., the Beacon Academy aimed to continue the Beacon School's success of providing an internationally-recognized curriculum that would provide Filipino parents an option for their children to maximize their potential as national and global citizens. Locsin added that its establishment was also a response to the rise of international schools in the country aiming to do the same.The school's campus opened in August 2010. Then Education Secretary Armin Luistro and then Biñan Mayor Marlyn Alonte-Naguiat were among the guests of honor during the school's opening rites. Locsin currently serves as the Beacon Academy's board chairman. The campus of the Beacon Academy measures 9 acres (0.036 km2), located approximately 45 kilometres (28 mi) south of Metro Manila. Heavily surrounded by greenery, it is situated on land donated by the Locsin family, the same land where the De La Salle University Science and Technology Complex is situated. It is also near the Ayala Westgrove Heights subdivision in Silang, Cavite and the Nuvali mixed-use residential development in Calamba, Laguna. The Beacon Academy has two two-storey buildings; the main building containing 11 state-of-the-art classrooms, including four laboratories, and the secondary building containing seven classrooms, including a music room and a visual arts studio, as well as an auditorium and a gallery. The Beacon Academy's facilities also include an eight-lane Olympic-size swimming pool, a basketball court, a football pitch, a fitness room, and a climbing wall.
