High School Faculty
High school faculty who teach courses offered through the Beacon Program are selected and certified by both their high school principal and Suffolk County Community College. To be certified to teach courses offered through the Beacon Program, high school faculty should hold credentials equivalent to Suffolk's faculty teaching a comparable on-campus course.
There is collaboration between the high school faculty and Suffolk's faculty in each academic department.
