15 Years of educating young men

Higher Graduation Rates

Our Eagle Academies high school graduation rate is 89% versus the 59% national average for young men of color, and 98% of our scholars were accepted to college in 2020. Eagle alumni have attended prestigious institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, Wesleyan University, the United States Military Academy at West Point, Carnegie Mellon University, and Morehouse College among many others. Most importantly, all Eagle Academy young men embrace the ideal that hard work and strong character combined with academic achievement define success. In the “Schott 50 State Report on Public Education and Black Males”, Eagle Academy has been described as one of the “beacons of light with outstanding leaders that are doing a great job saving hundreds of children.”
