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 2020, Kisha Hale was promoted from Vice Principal to Principal of the upper grades 1-3 and Sharmel Robinson was named Principal of the lower grades PK3-K.
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 former principal, Mrs. Sabrina O'Gilvie, who is now Director of Education leads a team of expert educators and support staff to create an optimal learning environment full of self-discovery and growth. In 2019, Royston Lyttle was named Principal of Eagle Academy PCS at Capitol Riverfront
