The BeaconA student-run newspaper for homeschoolers
The Beacon at Excelsior Classes is a student-run newspaper which helps high school homeschool students develop journalism skills as they research, write, edit and publish a monthly newspaper distributed to homeschool students and families. The newspaper content is mainly news and feature articles about faculty and students taking classes at Excelsior Classes. Above all, its purpose is to uphold Godly standards as students learn the art and craft of journalism.
These twenty homeschool students from all over the United States are a talented group of students with a variety of skills, backgrounds and interests coming together as a team for one school year. The Beacon staffers learn to uphold the highest professional and ethical standards, while working under deadline pressure in a collaborative environment to produce a newspaper that is both glorifying to God and of benefit and interest to its readers.
