Video: ABC News segment on MicroSociety
At EAGLE, we believe that students benefit when they are exposed to real-world learning experiences. As members of a MicroSociety, students create and operate businesses, produce goods, manage inventory, sell products to other students and the general public, predict profits and losses, predict market trends, and adjust production to meet customer demand.
Students become business managers, workers, consumers, bankers, legislatures, judges, police officers, journalists, and more. In doing so, students create and take part in every aspect of a model society, including learning to deal with troublesome aspects of their society; economic changes due to market success and failure, and crime/punishment, preparing students for life in the 'real world'.
Studies of existing MicroSociety schools conducted over the past 13 years show increases in attendance and academic success, as well as decreases in bullying, apathy, and anti-social behavior.

EAGLE Charter School uses traditional academic methods in concert with the MicroSociety Program to involve students in their education.
