Eagle Academy Launches Foundation in honor of late founder, Cassandra S. Pinkney

Eagle Academy lost its Founder and Executive Director, Cassandra Pinkney, who passed away on September 30, 2016. Known for her unwavering dedication to children, Cassandra spent four decades educating and advocating for underprivileged students. Starting her career in education as a preschool teacher, she too often came face-to-face with the grim reality that children did not always receive the services they needed to succeed. Through the creation of the Cassandra S. Pinkney Foundation, we will expand on Cassandra’s vision to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed. With a focus on “opportunity,” we intend to introduce our students to the possibilities of their futures. 

"We want to give our students a great foundation - a strong foundation. So no matter where they go, they are able to make it. Because they have everything they need in order to move forward." - Cassandra

The Cassandra S. Pinkney Foundation exists to support Eagle Academy and make possible its commitment to providing a high-quality education to every child. We do this making space for opportunity and by investing in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through the Arts), Special Education, supporting efforts to care for the “whole child," out-of-school time programming, promoting Eagle alumni, giving back to the community, and exposing Eagle Academy students to the possibilities of their future.

Our goal is to help expand the horizons of Eagle students by giving them access to opportunities normally outside of their reach. With your support, we can remove the physical, mental, and environmental barriers that have prevented generations of underprivileged children from reaching their dreams. Eagle students are capable of changing the world. Your generosity helps them get started.
