Higher Ed Web Development & Design Services

Beacon for Higher Education

Delivering unforgettable web experiences

Your school website is more than just a marketing and communication hub. It's often a prospective student's first impression of your school. To take advantage of that and show them exactly what makes your school the right choice, you need a team with expertise and passion. A team that takes an integrated approach, delivering the best in development, design, content, and function. A team with unparalleled creativity and technical expertise, who can achieve your goals and brings your design to life.

With Beacon, you don't have to settle for anything less.

our peerless approach to higher education development and design

Amazing websites don't just happen. They're created through a thoughtful and detailed process in which each new stage builds on the previous to create a satisfying and powerful final product. 

Our decades of experience creating easily maintainable and customizable sites in user-friendly content management systems (CMS) serve as the backbone of our work. From there, we integrate our programming language proficiency (HTML, XSLT, JQuery, CSS, etc.) and deep technical knowledge of third-party software (Site Search, Google Analytics, etc) with our marketing and communications skills.

Your site will see high performance across all your vital metrics (student enrollment and retention; ADA compliance, SEO, mobile-friendly, cross-device and cross-browser compatibility, and more) while our commitment to best practices and quality will protect your investment (change management, software maintenance, hosting, etc.).
