Eagle Academy Public Charter School’s mission is to build the foundation for a promising future for all students in a rich, robust learning environment that fosters creativity and problem-solving abilities. We emphasize cognitive, social, and emotional growth by engaging children as active learners in an inclusive learning environment. With two campus locations - Congress Heights Campus and Capitol Riverfront Campus - we continue to strive to bring high-quality education to all Eagle students.
Congress Heights Campus
Our flagship campus the former, McGogney School, was renamed “Eagle Academy at Congress Heights.” In 2013, we invested in design and renovations of the Wheeler Road SE location including tremendous investments in IT infrastructure and our first swimming pool for students. Our school leadership worked diligently to make progressive changes by recruiting high-performing teachers and staff to lead our students. In the summer of 2015, it was announced that Mrs. Melanie Leonard and Mr. Royston Lyttle would be the newly appointed principals of the Eagle Academy Congress Heights campus.
Capitol Riverfront Campus
Eagle Academy at Capitol Riverfront Campus is a small and intimate school setting located in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood adjacent to Washington Nationals ballpark and the US Capitol. The Capitol Riverfront staff takes pride in delivering excellent educational outcomes for students in a nurturing environment with small classroom sizes, high performing test scores, and extended learning opportunities. The school’s principal, Mrs. Sabrina O'Gilvie, leads a team of expert educators and support staff to create an optimal learning environment full of self-discovery and growth.
