EAGLE ACADEMY PROGRAM
SCHOOL DAY: Student school day is 8:45 am – 3:45 pm.
The Eagle Academy Program at the Dillard Center is a self-paced computer based program which enables students the ability to complete high school course work. Because certain assignments can only be completed at school and time is limited, it is critical that students attend every day and stay on task so that graduation requirements can be met.
When a course for graduation is taken at the Dillard Center Eagle Academy and completed with a grade of 70 or above, credit for that course will be placed on the student’s transcript with an indication that it is for credit through Eagle Academy.
Eagle Academy classes are much like credit by exams or correspondence courses, therefore, the grades for these classes will not be considered for grade point average (GPA) or class rank for the student.
