From the mind of Mr. Massey

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Blue Eagle Academy! We are thoroughly excited to begin this academic year as we continue to provide an alternative educational environment focused on building successful students. Our staff has been hard at work throughout the summer preparing for several new initiatives for BEA and for our district.

Each student attending Blue Eagle Academy will have access to an Apple device which helps to personalize learning. Students in our high school program will use MacBook Air laptops while our Junior BEA (elementary aged students) and middle school students will use Apple iPads. Blue Eagle Academy has continued to excel in leading the way for innovative instructional methods within the alternative school setting and helping our students find success in a rapidly changing world.
 
Aside from integrating technology throughout the curriculum, BEA is also participating in a new reading program and STEM education initiative.  The reading program, called Read 180, is offered through Scholastic and uses research based literacy techniques along with teacher input and guidance to assist struggling readers.  Also, Blue Eagle is starting its first year working with CyberKids Robotics in an effort to offer robotics to students on all three levels.  This will expose students to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education in a whole new way.  Elementary students will participate and compete on a LegoRobotics team while middle school students will be building and operating FTC robots and our high school students will actually construct and fly drones!

As we continue to grow in numbers our program continues to add quality staff members to accommodate student needs. We look forward to another great school year and hope to continue striving toward becoming the model alternative program for grades 3 – 12!

 
I AM EXCELLENCE

 

I bear the flame that enlightens the world.
I fire the imagination.
I give might to the dreams and wings to the aspirations of men.

I create all that is good, stalwart, and long-lasting.
I build for the future by making my every effort superior today.

I do not believe in "can't" or
"might have been."

When society draws a circle that will shut me out,
I will design my own circle that will draw me in.

 

I am parent of progress, the creator of creativity, 
the designer of opportunity, and the molder of human destiny.

Because of me, man holds dominion over himself, 
his home, his community, and his world. 
I leash the lightning and plumb the ether.

From out of the shadows of the past
I come wearing the scars of mistakes made by others.
Yet I wear wisdom and the contributions of all ages.
I dispel yesterday's myths and find today's facts.
I am ageless and timeless.

I have no time for vice, crime, and destruction.
I banish mediocrity and discourage being average.
I can function in pleasure or pain. I can steel the will to do what must be done.
Fortunate are the individuals, communities, and nations that know me.

Men and the world are my workshops.
Here I stir ambition, forge ideals, and create the keys that open the door to worlds never dreamed of.
Earth awakes unfolding to me. Life is always calling me.
My greatest success is yet to be discovered.

I am the source of creation, the outlet of inspiration, the dream of aspiration.
I am excellence.
Won't you, too, light my candle? Don't let me flicker away!
