Eagle Academy for Young Men II

Overview written by the school: Eagle Academy is a grades 6-12 school that develops young men to be critical thinkers and active citizens who embody our Five Eagle Pillars: Commitment to Excellence, Resilience, Confidence, Leadership, and Effort. Our curriculum ensures people who look like our scholars are reflected in the curriculum to connect school to their outside lives and help them better understand their own identities. Our small classes allow educators to develop supportive, life-long relationships with individual scholars. We believe in the power of Brotherhood and Ujima ("collective work and responsibility") to ensure the success of all our scholars. Eagle is more than a school; we are a family.
