Eagle Academy Application Packet
This application packet is meant to be completed by the STUDENT who is applying to Eagle Academy, not the parent or guardian.
Eagle Academy is designated an Alternative Education Campus (AEC) by the Colorado Department of Education. This designation means 95% or more of our students fall into at least one of the at-risk categories identified by Colorado Statute (SB 09-163). Questions in this application help determine if a student qualifies in one or more of these categories and if they are a good fit to join the Eagle Academy community.
About Eagle Academy

Eagle students attend school Monday from 2:30 – 8:35 pm and Tuesday-Thursday 1:00 - 8:35 pm. Smaller class sizes, personalized instruction and a family atmosphere are the hallmarks of the Eagle Academy community that rekindles a student’s desire and passion to learn. To be considered for admission to Eagle Academy, students must be between the ages of 16 and 20 and have attempted at least one year of high school.
Eagle Academy accepts new students each quarter on a first come first served basis until 150 student slots are filled.
Students wanting to be placed on the waiting list to attend Eagle Academy must complete and submit the online Eagle Application and have the online Counselor Recommendation completed on their behalf.
If the applicant is on and IEP (Individual Learning Plan), the parent or guardian needs to send a copy of it to our office as soon as possible for review.
Once a completed Student Application and Counselor Recommendation are received, they will be reviewed by Eagle Academy staff and your parent or guardian will be contacted about scheduling a one-on-one meeting with an administrator.
Accepted students and their parent/guardian are required to attend an orientation meeting before the quarter start, to further learn about Eagle and decide if it is the best place for the student.
