Our Insights

What’s Special

All boys school; lots of partnerships with outside organizations

The Downside

Rapid turnover of leadership

Part of the  Eagle Academy Foundation, an organization that supports all-boys public schools, Eagle Academy III is a small school that seeks to not only prepare its mostly African-American students for college academically, but also to instill character and leadership traits that will make them successful in higher education and beyond. The school serves grades 6 to 12 and graduated its first class in June 2017.

The school has a range of partnerships with community organizations and other non-profits providing extra-curricular activities and supports such as a violin program with the Noel Pointer Foundation, martial arts taught by DNA Karate, Model UN with Links, Inc. and a mentoring program with Kappa Alpha Psi and the International Christian Brotherhood, according to the schools 2016-17 Comprehensive Education Plan.  Out-of-school programs are provided by the Eagle Foundation, as well as through partnerships with Mount Sinai, Fordham University STEM program, the All-Star project and Summer Search.

Middle school test scores fall below the citywide average, though the passing rate on Regents exams in high schools is roughly the city average. Some 8th-graders earn high school credit taking earth science. High school students can take Advanced Placement English.

To help keep tabs on students, the school is divided into houses, and the boys meet regularly in small groups to discuss a range of personal issues. A majority of students say that bullying occurs, based on their responses to the 2016-17 school survey.

Cedric Hall became principal in August 2017, replacing Matthew Hamilton who had served less than two years.  Prior to his arrival at Eagle III, Hall worked in a range of positions including serving one year each as a resident principal at Roseville Community Charter in Newark, New Jersey as well as at schools affiliated with the Ascend Charter and Eagle Academy networks.

Eagle III occupies a building once used by the Allen Christian School and has renovated it to provide a clean bright environment, with two science labs, a weight-training room and an inviting library. It does not have a schoolyard so Eagle uses nearby parks for sports.

ADMISSIONS: The middle school is open to boys who live or attend school in Queens. The high school gives priority to continuing students, then to Queens students and then to students in other boroughs. (Gail Robinson, May 2014; updated with web reports, August 2017)
