When & Where
Eagle Academy Foundation
In 2004, a group of educators, parents, community leaders and corporate partners, led by the One Hundred Black Men, Inc. opened the first Eagle Academy for Young Men in the South Bronx, NY. The Eagle Model, featuring parental involvement, academic rigor, mentoring, combined with extended day and summer programming was put into practice.
The Eagle Academy for Young Men in the Bronx was the first single sex boys public school to open in New York City in approximately thirty years. David C. Banks, current President and CEO of the Eagle Academy Foundation, was the founding Eagle Academy principal.
