Georgia Southern University College of Education will host an open house for the EAGLE Academy Inclusive Post-Secondary Education program on Tuesday, Jan. 22 from 4 to 7 p.m., room 3156 of the College of Education classroom building on the Statesboro Campus.
EAGLE Academy, named for its commitment to Equal Access to Gainful Learning and Employment, is a comprehensive transitional program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The non-degree program offers courses and internships that enhance students with life skills and assist with career aspirations. Upon completion, students earn a certificate.
The open house will be a drop-in event with presentations to be made at both 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to provide a general overview of the program as well as details on the admissions and application processes. Information on how to schedule a campus tour will also be provided.
“We hope that anyone interested in inclusive post-secondary education will join us to learn about EAGLE Academy and the wonderful opportunity it provides to become prepare students with disabilities for their future,” said EAGLE Academy Director Karen Phipps. “We have experienced three semesters of our EAGLE Academy students in classrooms here at Georgia Southern and to watch their growth and accomplishments is astounding.”
Application deadline for EAGLE Academy is Feb. 15, and acceptance notification will be provided by the end of March.
Georgia Southern’s EAGLE Academy, which launched fall 2017, is now the ninth program of its kind in Georgia.
