Beacon Academy Jakarta started from humble beginnings with 23 students in Primary 1 in a refurbished warehouse back in 2007. Being the first school to combine the International Primary Curriculum and Cambridge Primary, students were gaining their knowledge, skills and understanding in a rigorous and fun way.
The campus was built to provide learners with an avenue to imagine, create and innovate as they learn, so they stand out and make a mark for themselves in this dynamic and ever-changing world.
The school aims to provide real-life learning with opportunities inside and outside of school. Students are exposed to this by essential events such as expert visits and field trips. Students are encouraged to ask relevant questions and think-out- of-the-box when meeting specialists and exploring places.
The school’s mission is to provide a warm and caring environment for their students, which in turn promotes learning through inquiry, academic rigour and international mindedness. Beacon Academy Jakarta is an International Baccalaureate World School, but they also do offer International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for secondary level students.
The school categorises education into 3 different levels which are Junior School, Middle School and Senior School. For Junior School, the school uses International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme framework which accommodates support through three pillars of the curriculum: the learner, learning and teaching, and the learning community.
On the Middle School level follows a concept-based and inquiry-based curriculum that fosters holistic learning in children. For Senior School level, the school provides a warm and caring environment, which encourages learning through inquiry, academic rigour and international mindedness.
The school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme gives students the opportunity to study a range of subjects in 5-6 subject areas, while still focusing in-depth on subjects that they wish to pursue at a university level.
Beacon Academy Jakarta is built on a beautiful 2.3 hectare land that is purpose-built for 21st century learning. The school has facilities such as, an international-standard football pitch, gymnasium, semi-indoor swimming pool, 514 seater Beacon Theatre, 2 libraries, visual arts studios, music studios and dance studios.
