The Beacon Project


The Beacon Project is South Bay Junior Academy’s annual, capitol campaign giving program and serves to fund the renovation of our 50-year-old building, expand existing programs and implement new ones. This endeavor began in the 2014-2015 school year and will continue to grow over time. It is our hope that this fund will lay the foundation for supporting major renovations necessary to replace heating and air-conditioning, provide flooring and upgrades in the multi-purpose room/gym, replace much needed pipes/plumbing, fund the science lab, expand programs such as foreign language and develop a scholarship program and build an endowment fund.

The Beacon Project outreach is extended to current families, past families, alumni, friends of and supporters of South Bay Junior Academy.

Growing Business Partnerships

We invite local businesses and corporate sponsors to participate in helping us achieve our goals and are looking to build relationships and grow lasting partnerships. If you or a company you work for or have knowledge about, would be interesting in participating in our Beacon Project, please contact Francey Marzicola, the Development Director at fmarzicola@sbja.com.

If you are a parent that works for a major corporation, you may find your company participates in a corporate matching program which will match your donation. We encourage parents to contact their Human Resource department at work to see if the company they are employed by supports an employee matching program.

We believe in forming long lasting partnerships that share in the commitment of our journey to offer excellence in education.
