This year, the Eagle Academy Foundation opened their latest school for helping teenage boys get on a successful path. The new school, Eagle Academy for Young Men of Harlem, is only enrolling sixth grade students, but the school has plans to add through 12th grade in the coming years.
According to NY1 News, the school will focus its curriculum on preparing these teenage boys for the real world:
"We teach them to be confident, to be leaders on a daily basis, to bring their best effort, to strive for academic excellence and above all else to be resilient that when they get knocked down they know how to get back up," said Eagle Academy Foundation President David Banks.
