We believe that success begins with preparation. Every child is born with limitless potential, yet not all receive equal opportunities or resources. This is an epidemic we feel so passionate about and want to seek change. It is our responsibility to ensure every child can reach their full potential. This is why creating educational equity is essential in building our future leaders. Why are student’s performance measured by their zip code, family income, or skin color? Poor achievement among low-income students is a systemic issue, not an individual failing. Too often, schools and parents lack the resources needed to unlock the potential of students facing the greatest challenges. 

At Beacon Hill, we’re changing the game for low-income African American and Hispanic students by bringing tutoring directly to the schools and neighborhoods that need it most. Beacon Hill can proudly say our leaders are deeply rooted in the communities they serve. Our secret? A profound understanding of our students and their neighborhoods, combined with proven, data-driven strategies that fuel academic growth. When you combine opportunities, high-quality education, and robust support, the result is thriving students ready to conquer the future.

On average, 95% of our students improve their reading scores by at least 1 grade level annually and 50% increase their math grade level. We expect this percentage in math to continue to grow, as this is the first year that Beacon Hill has implemented math services. At Beacon Hill, each student is assessed, and a customized learning plan is created. Certified professionals, assisted by trained volunteers, provide 2-3 hours of weekly tutoring.

Equity Statement

At Beacon Hill we have a common saying, “Every child deserves a chance to succeed.” We say this knowing that often gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status can be barriers to children achieving that success. We have worked hard over the past 15 years to ensure that we are tackling those barriers and eliminating those obstacles to help pave the way for these children’s futures.

Beacon Hill is committed to promoting equality and amplifying the diverse voices of our community. We aim to ensure that our services are wholly inclusive to meet the needs of all who interact with Beacon Hill, including students, their parents, our staff and board, volunteers, and partner agencies. Beacon Hill recognizes the diversity of our South Dallas community and want to do our best to meet the needs of those in it.
