The Eagle Academy is a program housed within the MSSD Language Arts Department. It is designed especially for students with significant needs in the areas of language and literacy. The primary goal of the program is to improve students’ signing, reading, and writing skills.
Eagle Academy students take a double period language arts class that provides a structured block of time to focus on their individual needs. Instruction takes a multi-prong approach: English instruction, ASL instruction, and ongoing assessment of skills in both languages using a variety of assessment tools.
