Thank you for your interest in Eagle Rock School, a tuition free non-profit organization. We are very proud of what students are accomplishing at Eagle Rock. However, we know from experience that Eagle Rock is not the right fit for every young person. Perhaps the most frequent question asked is, “What does a young person have to do to get in?”
The "right" Eagle Rock student is a student that is ready to choose Eagle Rock.
I traveled to Colorado from California to visit Eagle Rock’s illustrious campus because I was a troubled youth. Upon arriving, I knew Eagle Rock School (ERS) was a place I needed to be because the curriculum promoted independence, leadership, and was separate from all the negative influences I encountered growing up in Southern California. All of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs were present in order for me to start the journey to self–actualization.
While at Eagle Rock I felt safe physically and physiologically which was the push to engage the metacognitive. How do I think about learning? Who is the man I will become? What was I taught that will not aide me in accomplishing my goals? What do I need to unlearn? What is the moral and ethical code that influences my decisions and how does it need to change or develop?
The three years I spent at Eagle Rock School were pivotal for me to go on to become a Morehouse College graduate, international traveler, join the education field, Public Allies member, Presidential Service Awardee, mentor of youth, and a contributing citizen of society.Calvin King, ER 47 (2009),Eagle Rock Graduate, Current Director of Residential & Student Life, Christina Seix Academy
