Eagle Academy encourages academic excellence by integrating proven instructional methods with a challenging curriculum and high expectations.This combination provides every child with the foundation needed to achieve proficiency of Eagle Academy’s performance standards at each instructional level.
JOIN US FOR OUR FIRST EVER VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE
Therefore, Eagle Academy is proud to be able to provide those families who are not yet comfortable sending their student(s) to school during the Medium-High (cohort -two day in school for 5.5 hrs. and 3 days at home) and Medium-Low Risk (all students - five days a week for 5.5 hrs) levels the option of continuing to learn at home via EACS Online.
Teachers will continue to upload lessons, instructional videos, and assignments, onto the Canvas learning management system. Parents will continue to use the instructional resources and lessons provided by our MARVELous teacher cadre to teach at home. Students choosing this option will still be required to complete submit all assignments (to keep pace with their grade level cohorts), check-in with their classroom teachers on a pre-arranged weekly basis, and take all ASD and state-mandated assessments.
Whether in-person or online, Eagle Academy is committed to our mission of encouraging academic excellence by integrating proven instructional methods with a challenging curriculum and high expectations. If you have any questions, please contact Principal Carroll (907) 742-3025.

GCI is partnering with ASD to provide home internet service for students based on need. In order for families to qualify, they must demonstrate that they do not have existing internet service and cannot afford new internet service. Access to the internet will be filtered in accordance with ASD policies and regulations. Data upload and download will be limited but sufficient for online student learning. Contact the front office at (907) 742-3025 to initiate an application.
Alaska Communications has a special offer for students and teachers. See the flyer below.
School Uniform Expectations
Research shows that the clothes you wear actually impacts the way you perform. We strongly encourage your students to dress in their EACS school uniform during their online Zoom sessions with their teachers and classmates. Dressing the part, directly and indirectly, lets students know that they are readying themselves for learning.
Though it is not required, should your student decide not to wear your EACS uniform, we do expect students to dress in school appropriate attire.
Medium High-Risk, Medium Low-Risk, Low Risk
Official School Uniform Dress Code will be enforced. Please refer to page 25 of the EACS School Policy and Procedures Manual.
Eagle Academy will be following ASD safety protocols. We view the mask mandate as an extension of our school uniform policy and as such the EACS Academic Policy Board (APB) has issued the following guidance:
- Parents will provide masks for their student(s);
- Mask colors shall match school uniform colors and be solid (no prints or designs other than our official school logo)
French Toast has graciously donated one uniform facemask for each student. We will distribute those to students when we resume in-person instruction (Medium-High and Medium-Low Risk levels).
In the event that you are unable to source face masks for your student(s), please contact Principal Carroll.
What about Volunteer Hours?
The charter of Eagle Academy outlines that each family volunteer at least 16 service hours per school year. Our parent volunteers are one of the reasons that Eagle Academy Charter School is one of the top schools in the Anchorage School District.
Until the Municipality of Anchorage is no longer in a High-Risk level of COVID-19 cases, all ASD facilities will be closed to visitors to limit the spread. Please see the guidelines below if you need to visit an ASD building.
Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding COVID 19 and Health and Safety mandates, the APB has voted to temporarily suspend the requirements for school service for the time being.
The will still be many opportunities for parents to volunteer and support our school. Please check with your student's classroom teachers to see how you can help.
