We envision a future where this country’s high school youth are fully engaged in their education.  We implement effective and engaging practices that foster each student’s unique potential and provide the environment and guidance to explore their “sparks” at Eagle Rock School and to support schools nationally to do the same.  Eagle Rock serves adolescents who are not thriving in their current situations, for whom few positive options exist, and who are interested in taking control of their lives and learning.

Eagle Rock is a value-driven school. A fundamental philosophy, “Eight Plus Five Equals Ten,” has animated Eagle Rock since its inception. The Eight Themes serve as guideposts for the overall school design. These themes are monitored by the school’s leadership team to ensure that they are alive and well. The Five Expectations serve as the organizing framework for our academic program. Students have to demonstrate proficiency in each of the Five Expectations prior to graduation. The Ten Commitments are the values our students and staff are striving to embody everyday.
