[vc_column_text]Our Eagle Academies high school graduation rate is 87% versus the 59% national average for young men of color and 98% of our scholars were accepted to college, including prestigious institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, the United States Military Academy at West Point, Carnegie Mellon University, and Morehouse College. Most importantly, all Eagle Academy young men embrace the ideal that hard work and strong character combined with academic achievement define success.

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.”

“In the African American community, women have always been out there standing up for their children. The Eagle movement was launched because a few men said, ” You know what, it is time for us to do our part as well .” What if Black Men could stand up on their own, and address this problem that most people thought had no solution? ”
