A new school in Harlem is aimed at helping teenage boys get on the right path.

Eagle Academy for Young Men of Harlem is the latest school opened by the Eagle Academy foundation.

Currently the school only has a sixth grade, but plans on expanding up to 12th grade over the next few years.

Educators prepare their students for the real world by using what they call the CLEAR model.

"We teach them to be confident, to be leaders on a daily basis, to bring their best effort, to strive for academic excellence and above all else to be resilient that when they get knocked down they know how to get back up," said Eagle Academy Foundation President David Banks.

Besides the original school in the Bronx, there are also Eagle Academies in Brooklyn, Queens, and Newark, NJ.
