Eagle History

The mission of The Eagle Academy for Young Men is to develop young men committed to the pursuit of academic excellence, strong character, and responsible leadership.

Our History

The Eagle Academy for Young Men opened in the fall of 2004 after admitting its first ninth-grade class. From there, Eagle developed into a full 4-year high school and moved into its current state-of-the-art flagship facility constructed in 2010. Starting during the 2011-2012 school year, the school opened its doors for its first 6th grade class. As of the 2013-2014 school year, Eagle serves all grades from 6 through 12. In 2018, Eagle Bronx members of its original 6th grade class graduated from high school!

The Eagle Academy for Young Men has expanded beyond its initial Bronx roots, opening additional schools in Ocean Hill/Brownsville Brooklyn, South Jamaica Queens, Harlem, Staten Island and in Newark, New Jersey. All schools are supported by the Eagle Academy Foundation, itself a result of the initial investment of a group of educators, parents, community leaders and corporate partners, led by the One Hundred Black Men, Inc.

The Eagle Academy Foundation empowers at-risk inner city young men to realize their academic and civic potential with quality immersive learning experiences and proven community based practices that address short falls in public education.
