Dear Prospective EAGLE Families,
Welcome to EAGLE College Preparatory Schools South Mountain, where we encourage and empower children in a loving and safe learning environment. Our wonderful team is eager to serve the children in our community, and our scholars benefit greatly from our focus on academic excellence and character development. We know that your child is precious to your family, and it is a privilege to partner with you to ensure that your children are prepared to succeed and thrive in whatever profession they choose to pursue.
This year, you will see us intentionally providing additional support to our scholars through after-school tutoring opportunities, the use of BoysTown as a way to speak specific life skills, and the expertise of a school counselor, who will offer support to our campus. Our excellent teachers use assessment data with intentionality as we plan and execute lessons that will meet the needs of each scholar. Our use of iReady, a wonderful online learning program that can be used at home, will be prioritized as an additional opportunity to individualize instruction. Finally, we are excited to focus on expanding our STEAM offerings as our K-5 scholars attend STEM classes twice a week, our middle school scholars participate in a hands-on science class, and all students participate in our arts program so that all EAGLE scholars grow not only academically, but as well-rounded people.
EAGLE South Mountain uses the Character Formation Project to emphasize the importance of seeing oneself as part of something much bigger, and we explicitly teach and discuss respect, integrity, justice, responsibility, self-sacrifice, diligence and courage. This year, in addition to studying these virtues in the classroom, we will emphasize one virtue each month as we honor scholars, team members, families and community members that exemplify these virtues. We look forward to partnering with you to lay a solid foundation of strong character in the lives of your children.
We have set specific goals this year related to equipping students for real life, increasing student learning, and engaging our families well. Our team is eager to speak with you about the ways that we can serve your family and the resources that we can offer as we help you to set your child up to soar into a bright, college-bound future. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your wonderful family.
Grateful to serve,
