To Your Attention

It has come to our attention that an individual who names Eagle Academy PCS as their employer has been writing hateful and threatening messages on social media. We condemn the views expressed by this person who is not and never has been an Eagle employee. This person’s only contact with Eagle was in September 2017 when they were enrolled in Urban Teachers, a respected program that offers aspiring teachers in master’s programs in DC and other metropolitan areas the opportunity to train in city schools. When Urban Teachers became aware of his social media activity back in September 2017, he was dismissed from their program and Eagle simultaneously banned him from our schools. Eagle is taking legal steps to inform this individual to cease and desist his false assertions that he is in any way affiliated with Eagle. Eagle has zero tolerance for racism or sexism of any kind. This individual’s conduct is deplorable and in no way reflects who we are.

Remembering Our Founder

Eagle Academy founder, Cassandra S. Pinkney, passed away on September 30, 2016, but her legacy will live on through the school she left behind. Known for her unwavering dedication and love for children, Cassandra spent four decades educating and advocating for underprivileged students.
Starting her career in education as a preschool teacher, she too often came face-to-face with the grim reality that children did not always receive the services they needed to succeed. In 2003, she partnered with Dr. Joe Smith to start Eagle Academy, the first exclusively early childhood public charter school in DC. Cassandra's legacy and passion for providing high-quality programs to low-income students is reflected in Eagle Academy, and it is our hope to continue her life's work for years to come.
Through the creation of the Cassandra S. Pinkney Foundation, we will expand on Cassandra's vision to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed. With a focus on "exposure," we intend to introduce our students to the possibilities of their futures.
