The last two weeks have been quite eventful for the staff and participants in our LEAP program. On December 1, everyone in LEAP went to Wal-Mart to participate in Clark Howard’s annual “Clark’s Christmas Kids” holiday event. Led by LEAP Director Scott Baldrich and instructors Grey Eaton and Adam Branson, the group selected a child to “adopt.” Then each LEAP participant purchased an item from that child’s wish list to donate.

Today students were able to take a trip around the world via their taste buds at our annual International Luncheon. Families contributed their favorite dishes, reflecting elements of their cultures and backgrounds. The buffet offered choices from Mexico, India, Germany, Italy, and the USA, among many other countries.

One of the activities in our LEAP into Summer program is the Hands on Tools class led by Grey Eaton. Every summer, our LEAP camp participants have the fun of working on a group project. This year’s creation will be a full scale model of Sputnik I, the world’s first artificial satellite. The opportunity for this project comes from our neighbors at the Computer Museum of America (CMoA).

What a week it was! Eaton’s Sunshine Committee delighted our teachers and staff with a Monday through Friday extravaganza last week (April 23-28) to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week at Eaton. Spearheaded by the kind efforts of Debbie Arant, Becky Wright, and Allison Hall, many parents made financial contributions, gave items for a staff raffle, and dropped off food items.
Praise for Eaton Academy
ISP Summer School
Please know that our family is so appreciative of the sound learning from kind and talented teachers and the overall experience at Eaton. My daughter remarks on how much she learned during her brief time there. I am so thankful that her previous school shared Eaton as a potential resource with us, and I highly recommend Eaton for any student! Specifically, the summer school Geometry experience was excellent.
I have never seen my son so happy about school! He was so proud yesterday that he made a 100 on a Lit test. He has also been doing his work on his own. Typically it was a war to get him to do his homework. This has been a life changer. Thank you for all that you do!
Thank you for your kind words about our daughter. We love hearing about her triumphs and successes! She loves Eaton and has really matured and come out of her shell. We couldn’t be happier with her progress and the support of Everyone at Eaton.
We would like to thank you so much for all you have done with the LEAP Program and Riese this summer. Riese already misses it and can’t wait to see you all when school starts up. It was such an amazing experience for Riese. We are still working with his immaturity, but this program really helped a lot with it. We were so happy to see Riese so excited and happy about attending every day. It is awesome to see a wonderful community of people where Riese can be himself and fit in. He made so many friends. All of your counselors helped Riese and touched his heart in some way. He thinks the world of all of you. We thank you for the help and guidance you gave us too in how to handle certain situations with Riese. We are hoping he can attend next year, too. We just want to say a huge “Thank You” from the Druien Family. You all rock and we are so glad you are a part of our lives. What a wonderful program for young people who need a little extra. We highly recommend it.
Eaton Academy was the best thing that happened for our son’s education. They accommodate all types of learning. They won’t give up until they find what works for each student. The owner, principal, and teachers are all easy to work with and truly want the best for your children and their education. We have been there for two years and are proud to be part of the Eaton family. We have made many lovely friends through here. Class size was perfect for what our son needed. They are there for you after graduation to help guide your child to college, technical school, trade school, job, and housing. So yes, we are very happy with Eaton Academy.
Eaton’s Independent Study Program (ISP) has been the BEST decision we could have made for our daughter. Due to medical issues, we thought she might need to go at slower pace than her old school allowed. It turned out that being in ISP allowed her to finish her senior year 2 months early! Thank you, Eaton!!
We’ve been extremely impressed with how your teachers have gone above and beyond for our daughter. She transitioned so easily to virtual learning. Thank you for giving her a smooth and stress free end to her senior year. Eaton was an excellent choice for us….so grateful.
