Eagle Academy Charter School General Information

4th Grade Field Trip

What is a Charter School?
A charter school is a "school of choice" sponsored by the Anchorage School District (ASD) and authorized by the school board. It functions under the management of the Academic Policy Board (APB), which is comprised of stakeholders (parents, staff, community members, etc.). The APC hires the principal, establishes school policy, has fiscal responsibility and is accountable to ASD for delivery of it's curriculum and charter. The program is tuition-free.

" An excellent addition to our school district for those students who desire a structured, standards-based Spalding® curriculum. We encourage you to learn all you can about their program proposal." - Carol Comeau, Superintendent

“Eagle Academy is a wonderful fit for our family.  Since my children have been attending the school, their academics have more than excelled.  The one on one they get from the teachers is amazing, along with the principal and most of the staff.  So many opportunities have been given to my children since they have started school here.  They are placed in the level that works well for them and pushed when needed to excel to the next level and that is just what they need.”  - Traci Payne

“The structure and curriculum of EACS is making a huge difference in our daughter’s learning.  We have seen her advance rapidly since she entered the school this year.”  - Kristen Bush

“We really enjoy the small school feel of Eagle Academy.  It has worked well to keep my children engaged and working to the best of their abilities.  It also provides a feeling of safety for the kids and for their parents since the school has an atmosphere of everyone knowing everyone.”  - Naomi Groom-Collison
