The Eagle Academies in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Harlem, Staten Island, and Newark, NJ are traditional public schools, enrolling young men from their surrounding areas.
Students are selected through a lottery system operated by the NYC Department of Education (NYCDOE). Our Scholars are not pre-screened or selected based on testing—our Academies take all students as the NYCDOE assigns them to us. Each Eagle Academy features parental engagement, academic rigor, college preparation, extended day and Saturday programs, rituals, summer programs and mentoring all supported by The Eagle Academy Foundation, Inc.
Eagle Academies have been described as “beacons of light with outstanding leaders that are doing a great job saving hundreds of children.”
