Welcome to East Academy–home of the Eagles! At East Academy, we offer an A-rated academic program (2016 and 2017, Overall Value Added) and provide a safe and secure learning environment. Our mission is that each educator will work diligently to execute our academic and cultural expectations explicitly and with fidelity to ensure each student’s educational needs are met. Our core values at East are “pursuing academic excellence, celebrating individuals, developing character, and building community.”
The students at East Academy have a very hardworking and dedicated staff. I have observed many of them go out of their way to serve our students. We hope you strongly consider enrolling your child at East Academy and allowing us to serve your child’s educational needs.

Community schools offer an alternative to the local public school. They are free and open to all students and focused on meeting student needs for success. Community schools are among the top-performing schools in the nation.
Our educational approach has five principles at its core. These principles provide a strong foundation for learning and include: 1) Individualized learning plan for all scholars, 2) High expectations for student achievement, 3) Safe and secure learning environment, 4) Integrated technology to advance achievement, 5) Collaborative relationships with parents and community members.
Individualized LearningWe care about every student and are committed to preparing children for lifelong success. Our Individualized Learning Plans start with a unique baseline for each student and analyze performance data at regular, short intervals. Teachers and staff tailor lessons and provide support accordingly. Individual Learning Plans are reviewed by teachers, parents and guardians at least one time each quarter.
Academic ExcellenceAs part of the ACCEL Schools network, we strategically apply best practices to our curriculum design, teacher training, and integrated technology to drive continuous gains in academic performance.
Accessible to AllWe foster a culture that is reflective of community values and interests, and we are open to all students.
Community PartnershipWe are not just located in your community — we are a part of it. We partner with local and government leaders and parents.
Safe and CaringWe care about the well-being and development of each child. We insist on a secure and orderly school. We address every aspect of security, from building codes and safety procedures to codes of conduct and character education. East Academy has a state of the art camera system, employs a full time security officer, and estensively trains staff to ensure the safest learning environment for all students.
East Academy earned an A rated Value Add Grade because our students achieved academic growth that exceeded the expectations of the Ohio Department of Education.
Our school is part of ACCEL Schools, an established network of more than 40 charter and community schools located throughout the U.S. We serve more than 11,500 students nationwide.
