“Even after transitioning to college, the continued support and guidance from Beacon Hill Academy has given me the strength to continue with my college course! They've been there every step, giving me what I needed to keep going. Without them, college might've been way harder. I owe a lot to Beacon Hill Academy for sticking with me and helping me get this far”.  - Preston Griffiths
