About Beacon Day School

Beacon Day School (BDS) is a California non-public school for children with autism and related disorders. BDS is fully accredited by the California Department of Education and serves students from school districts across Southern California. BDS was founded in 2004 by Dr. Mary Jo Lang, a clinical psychologist and fellow autism parent, who recognized the unique and diverse academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of the autism population and set out to create a safe, compassionate, nurturing school community dedicated to improving the lives of students and their families.
