At present, we at Eaton academy are planning to operate the classes and sessions of all of our programs in person for the 2020-21 school year. We have created a detailed first draft of the procedures and protocols we will have in place when school starts. A copy of that plan is included with this blog post. We also produced a brief video outlining points of the plan.

When the calendar turns to June, it’s time to roll out our summer programming. In the strange world of today, we have had to make some adjustments to our usual bill of fare. This year we are offering all of our programs online. The summer options provide academic support, entertainment, life skills, and socialization.

On Saturday, May 30, we held our graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. Normally, graduation is part of our Evening of Celebration, an all-school event that we host at the Roswell Mill to honor our students of all ages. This year in deference to the need for social distancing and to host an event in the safest environment possible, we gathered with just our graduates, their families, and their teachers in front of our building at 9:00 in the morning.

With the 2019-20 school year having just concluded, I want to thank the parents of our students for entrusting us with their education. Helping them to grow socially and emotionally and to advance academically is why Eaton Academy exists. Seeing our students laugh and learn brings joy to everyone on our staff.

As we all know, circumstances are not normal right now. Our hearts break knowing that we will not be able to celebrate the year-end achievements of all our students, particularly the seniors. Although we’ve had to cancel this year’s Evening of Celebration, we hope to have some type of graduation event for the seniors in June. And we’re using our Facebook page to share images and videos of our 2020 graduates doing “senior things”. Please check out this blog post!

Head of School Brian Uitvlugt spoke on air with the hosts of the Chuck & Chernoff Show on The Fan radio stations yesterday. The popular local sports talk station is doing its part to help local businesses and schools reach new audiences during the COVID-19 situation. Mr. Uitvlugt talked about the excellent use Eaton’s teachers and families are making of Eaton’s online platforms, and he discussed Eaton’s progress in having all programs ready for both in person and online sessions starting this summer. Check out this blog post to listen to the interview.

To ease the stress and chaos caused by our new reality, Eaton Academy offers a summer school program designed to meet students’ individual needs. Either in person or online, students have the opportunity to make up courses or to accelerate their scholastic pace by taking new courses. Sessions can be taken in small group classes or via Independent Study. In-person sessions will maintain appropriate social distancing and follow other health guidelines. Group classes run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
While a degree of uncertainty remains regarding summer offerings in today's world, Eaton Academy is happy to announce that our LEAP summer program will take place starting in June. We have adapted our curriculum so that teachers can deliver live, hands-on web-based learning in our new stay-at-home society. There are two three-week sessions, one in June and one in July. The program runs daily from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
In this brave new world, Eaton Academy is pleased to announce our menu of summer camp choices. These creative, fun, and educational camps will be led by members of our teaching staff. Teachers will guide students through their activities via live, on-camera direction. The Google platform will enable students to see and interact with the other members of the group.

Praise for 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!!
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.
At George Mason University I’ve made Dean’s List every semester, and needless to say I don’t think I would have been able to do it without my time at Eaton Academy. Eaton helped me tremendously with my time management, which is an essential part of college life that I think most students lack when coming in.
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.
The team at Eaton could not have been more amazing and supporting during this challenging time. You guys pivoted and adjusted with grace – I have no doubt it was not as easy as you guys made it look, so thank you.
Eaton Academy gave my son the time to mature and finish his education in his time. With all the setbacks he’s had the last couple of years, you all have been a true blessing!! I will forever sing your praises! Actually, I have an acquaintance whose child is falling behind and could use Eaton’s help. I will speak to her and tell her how helpful and accommodating Eaton has been. Plus, there are so many options to choose from for an education at Eaton.
We want to let you know how very impressed we are with the way you have handled this unprecedented situation!! You have made the transition seamlessly, and I know it has been much, much work for all of you!! Thank you so very much!!
