Staff at the school work together as a team and are flexible to accommodate special events or schedule changes. We work with students below and above grade level and seek to provide the instruction needed to move each student to their next level.

Eagle Wings Academy is a not-for-profit Christian school operating with a homeschool mindset. We assess students for their academic performance level and focus our instruction on closing any academic gaps while helping them reach their potential in each subject. We have multi-graded classes in which individualized instruction is given.

As a Christian school, our teachers are expected to integrate the Bible and the walk of faith into their lessons. Teachers sit with students at a weekly chapel service. Service projects and field trips include locations of an evangelical nature. Daily staff meetings include a devotional and prayer.

Eagle Wings Academy is intentionally a small school. Classes are typically comprised of eight students or less. The school recruits volunteers so that some additional help may be available in targeting instruction to particular needs.
