Eagle Academy PCS

Eagle Academy Public Charter School, established in 2003, is a high-performing community school in Washington, DC providing an innovative academic program to young children, from PreK-3 through Grade 3 , in two campuses located in Wards 6 and 8. The school educates each child through a holistic approach that includes the provision of health and social services. Eagle Academy's goal is to educate every child to the highest level possible. The program for all age levels focuses on readiness skills using developmentally appropriate activities with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through the Arts (STEAM). The school opened as the first exclusively early childhood public charter school in Washington, DC. Eagle Academy has the distinction of being the first early childhood public charter school in DC to be accredited through the prestigious Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and is authorized as a local educational agency (LEA) by the DC Public Charter Schools Board. Given the fact that most of our students come from families and a community (Ward 8) with the highest rate of poverty in our nation's capital, Eagle Academy's leadership decided from the very beginning to be much more than just a high-performing school. Eagle Academy has an excellent track record of building relationships with a variety of community groups that benefits our students, their families and the broader community. Eagle Academy works closely with its students and students' families to identify their academic needs, and their health and daily living needs. We put in place safety nets for the hungry child (free breakfast, lunch and supper), for the sick child (e.g., two full-time school nurses and partnerships with the DC Department of Health Oral Health Division, and the DC Department of Behavioral Health), and social services for their parents.
