Dear Parents, Students & Staff,
Last week, in a loathsome move on the districts behalf, the Charter School Board and the School Reform Commission rendered a non-renewal decision to close our school. Take note, this decision does not close the doors of Eastern Academy. We have full intentions on appealing this decision and remaining open during this process.
Believe us, there is a firm strategy in place to ensure our students continue to experience an passion based and early college education.
Unfortunately, our case isn't unique. In fact, it’s one that many Charters in Philadelphia face with the Charter School Board and the School Reform Commission. However, Eastern stands in a very different circumstance on this particular issue because we have evidence that supports our claim to remain open. As we appeal, we will be presenting well-founded evidence of documentation and testimony that will overturn this decision.
In the next upcoming weeks, be prepared to see Eastern Academy Charter School on the front lines. Additionally, we will be keeping you fully informed during this process.
I’m confident that we will prevail with your continued support.

Congratulations to the Eastern Academy Charter School 12th Grade on being a TreeRing Green Yearbook School! Since they were able to sell 46 yearbooks, Trees for the Future, will work to plant that many trees in the school's name.
