Beacon Academy is a charter school in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. They were dealing with a very outdated website that was difficult to update and maintain. On top of this they were preparing to expand and move to a new location in 18 months. They needed to upgrade their web presence and attract enough new families to fill the new sections they were going to be adding.
The site won the 2017 Annual TeacherLists Academy Awards for Best Art Direction.
“While it is always an honor to just be nominated, there was no way the Beacon Academy would stop there. Their site is a beacon (pun intended) of beauty. It reminds us that school websites can be both useful and a visual treat. Shine on Beacon!”
