Beacon Academy, the Montessor high school that hopes to open in Evanston next fall, has chosen a site on Davis Street as its planned location.

School officials are scheduled to appear before the city's Site Plan and Appearance Review Committee Wednesday to seek a special use permit for the property at 622 Davis St.

The school had been considering renting upstairs space either at the Davis Street site or in a building at 715 Church St.

The private school is also seeking a loan guarantee or some other form of financial assistance from the city to cover part of its startup costs.
