Our Insights

What’s Special

Lots of support for males of color

The Downside

Academic achievement has a ways to go

Established in 2014, Eagle Academy for Young Men of Staten Island aims to instill accountability and pride in young men of color. Each school in the Eagle network operates on the premise that an all-boys school with support and mentorship will foster positive livelihood outcomes for young men in communities where they are at high risk for incarceration.

Modeled after the flagship Eagle Academy in the Bronx, the schools in the Eagle network use rituals and rites of passage as tools to create cohesive bonds among students, staff, and the community. 

Eagle Academy students attend school from 8 am to 5 pm.

While students responding to school surveys say they are learning a lot in their classes, most students enter with weak skills and academic achievement has a ways to go. 

Admissions: Open to male students who live anywhere on Staten Island. (Clara Hemphilll, web reports, April 2019)
