Unique. Small Community. Making a difference.

 
 

1. The Behringer Family

 
 

What does your family value most about Beaver Creek Academy?

My child is honoured as she is. This respect for her individuality and her spirit, as a young child, is so important to us. Our child isn't made to fit into Beaver Creek Academy, BCA fits her! There is an immense amount of peace in us, her parents, but also in her that her school is a safe place. Safe to be a kid, to take risks, make mistakes, learn and ultimately grow into who she is more and more each day.

How has your child changed since enrolling at Beaver Creek Academy?

Amazingly! Our daughter is social, articulate and well spoken. She is only 4 years old and talks to us about kindness, generosity and being calm in our bodies. She is confident and self-assured as well as curious about everything!

Have you been surprised by something that joining IELC has brought to your family?

Kindness. Our daughter practices kindness in our home everyday. She is a leader in our home by reminding us all to be more kind. Her older brother is more kind because of her influence and joy. She is so happy and joyful!

The cost of tuition can sometimes be a barrier to people joining Beaver Creek Academy. What would you tell them to overcome this objection?

It is an investment. The best investment.

We work hard to make it work, but I have never questioned the value of this investment. The growth, joy and overall success our daughter is having at Beaver Creek Academy makes it so that her tuition is never something we will consider negotiable when budgeting, it is just far too valuable.

Would you recommend Beaver Creek Academy to others? 

YES! 100% Absolutely YES!

Beaver Creek Academy is what Education should be. Honouring children, Intentional in its role as a community of compassionate educators. Adaptive, informed, respectful and passionate.

What else do you find important for families to know who are considering Beaver Creek Academy?

The other children at Beaver Creek Academy are wonderful kids. I consider the peer group of each child very important in their development and have great faith in the peers by which my daughter is surrounded. If what my daughter brings home is any indication of what is being taught and nurtured in the classroom, there is an incredible group of children growing into an amazing group future adults. That is pretty exciting.

What does your family value most about Beaver Creek Academy?

What is of most value to us is without question Bethany.

Her dedication to making better human beings is of utmost importance to us.

How has your child changed since enrolling at Beaver Creek Academy?

Our son has shown a great growth in maturity, compassion and a sense of self. He is confident in who he is, strengths and weaknesses.

He has also grown in language. He is interested in knowing all around him.

Have you been surprised by something that joining IELC has brought to your family?

Since being with Beaver Creek Academy we have been surprised by how much about our son we did not fully understand. And how much more confident we are in our convictions that there is a better form of education.

The cost of tuition can sometimes be a barrier to people joining Beaver Creek Academy. What would you tell them to overcome this objection?

The cost of tuition is a huge challenge for our family. We have had to adjust many aspects of our lives to make it work. That being said, we look at it as an investment into the well being of our children. 

Would you recommend Beaver Creek Academy to others? 

All I do is recommend Beaver Creek Academy to everyone I know!

We are the start of something great! You don’t have to move to Sweden!

What else do you find important for families to know who are considering Beaver Creek Academy?

We came to Beaver Creek Academy as a family who had always thought that homeschooling would always be the only thing we could do that aligned with our views. Now in our third year with the community we are invested in its development. We need to see it grow as our son grows and soon our youngest to join.
