High School Induction Program
The Induction Program was created to provide
students an opportunity to develop relationships with staff members within
their very first days as Blue Eagle Academy students. Students are required to
meet with several staff members at BEA and conduct interviews with these
individuals to gain knowledge on how each person fits into the plan. This
process allows for students to realize upfront the expectations of the Academy
and how to be successful while here. The following meetings will be held and
this document will become a part of the student’s portfolio.
