Welcome to North County's innovative postsecondary option for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities!


Beacons was founded by families to offer robust person-driven learning opportunities richly supported with technology and accessible pacing. Our goal is to empower individuals with skills, tools, information, and support so that they are equipped to launch and lead a life of their choosing.
