Think Big! Live on Purpose! Excel at Life!
Eastern Academy Charter School (EACS) was founded in 2009 by Eastern University. The educational philosophy of EACS empowers students to pursue their passion in an early college learning environment while connecting their experience in the real world. The innovative mission of discovery-based learning experience is to develop logical reasoning and critical thinking. As an early college high school, students are afforded the opportunity to enroll in advanced courses at area colleges and universities. In addition to experiencing the educational stimulation of a college campus atmosphere, they qualify for dual credit, allowing them to graduate high school with college credits completed. Ninety percent of EACS students graduate on time and ninety percent graduated to post-secondary institutions, military or work The class of 2017 received close to $2.2 million in scholarship funds. The school was also awarded a Black Male Engagement Grant of $10,000 from the Knight Foundation and received national exposure from the nomination of its CEO, Omar Barlow, as a finalist for the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Award’s Best Community Leader.
The mission of Eastern Academy Charter School is to provide a holistic, college-integrated learning community dedicated to the education of each student in the context of his/her unique interests. The school will provide students with an environment of excitement and early expectation through an integrative discovery-based learning experience that will develop logical reasoning, critical thinking, and purpose driven global citizens. The school will graduate self-directed, self-aware learners many of whom will have successfully mastered college level work.
