How Does Beekman Meet Individual Needs?

As New York City’s oldest and best provider of personalized education, The Beekman School offers small classes averaging 5 to 6 students, as well as one-to-one classes, to college prep high school students on a year-round, rolling admissions basis.  Students can begin a course at any time during the day, and be admitted on a part-time or full-time basis.

What Sets Beekman Apart From Other Schools

“I’ve done my homework and there isn’t another school like you in the whole country!”  Yes, that mother is right.  Beekman’s ability to personalize a student’s education is unmatched.  As our tag line states, “One school. Infinite possibilities.”

Although our college preparatory program follows the same guidelines as larger, more traditionally structured schools, Beekman’s combination of class sizes averaging 6 students, one-to-one courses, and distance learning provides us with opportunities to create a schedule as individualized and unique as each student’s needs.

How can a school create a flexible schedule and which students benefit from a custom curriculum?

Parents and students think of the school day in much the same way everyone thought about it decades ago.  Classes begin early in the morning and students finish in the mid-afternoon.  While this plan may work for a majority of students, there are a significant number of students who have difficulty with fitting into the traditional school day for a number of reasons.  This is why some schools have developed the ability to create an individualized curriculum.

Beekman: Teaching to the Individual

Our national school system, public and private alike, is designed for keeping a group of students as homogeneous as possible.  Even with all of the claims of “teaching to the individual” that a traditional school makes, there has to be a level of keeping everyone in the class at the same pace, leaving some students behind and holding others back.  How, then, can you truly teach to the individual?

Beekman: Not Just Better - Distinctive!

Virtually no other school in the New York City metro area provides the myriad of educational solutions that we provide.  Between The Beekman School and The Tutoring School (a program within Beekman), we can create an academic schedule that supports most students who are college-bound.  Whether you want to start your day late, finish your day early, study Swahili or increase your course load to graduate early, The Beekman School can tailor a program that fits your unique requirements.

When Summer School is the Right Choice for You

Here we are, summer around the corner, the sidewalks soon heating up, and dreams of beach vacations approaching.  But wait.  Maybe you’re just realizing your son has fallen behind in that geometry class.  Maybe your daughter needs better language prep in Spanish or Latin.  Perhaps English is a second language and your child will be more comfortable with classes next term by continuing English studies during the summer.  Or maybe your child wants to go deeper in a topic of interest.
