When & Where
Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark
Eagle Academy for Young Men of Newark opened its doors in 2012.
Developed at the invitation of Mayor Cory Booker, this Eagle Academy served one incoming class at the 6th grade and populating an additional school year each passing year, until it reaches the 12th grade. Like the other Eagle Academies in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Harlem (coming September 2013), this campus serves at-risk inner city young men and offers a full spectrum of extended day and Saturday programs to engage students as well their families.
The Eagle Academy Foundation is excited to expand its successful model to help urban young men and their families to achieve academic and social success.
