The Beaconhouse Group is one of largest privately owned education systems in the world. Established in November 1975 as the Les Anges Montessori Academy for toddlers, Beaconhouse has since grown into a global network of private schools, institutes, and universities, imparting distinctive and meaningful education for up to 193,000 students from pre-school to post-graduation. Of these, 82,000 study at the group’s flagship network, the Beaconhouse School System, while the remaining students are largely enrolled at The Educators, a parallel school network operated by the group. The group has 11,000 employees, of whom approximately 6,000 are teachers.
