College Events & Key Dates
At Eastern Academy your personal and professional development is important to us.
Throughout your time in your program, campuses plan a variety of events to help you feel your school’s spirit. Many of these events include:
themed campus lunches
campus contests and more
Each year we host campus socials to celebrate Christmas, Halloween and other key holidays. Our students and staff are also very active in the community and do regular fundraisers for those in need and volunteer hundreds of hours back to many local teams, groups and charities – both inside and outside their field of study.
We also welcome all students to form any club, sports teams, group or association that interests them and their classmates. We will assign you a staff mentor to help make it happen and ensure that you get the college support you need.
Taking a leadership role in College will be very rewarding, a lot of fun and look amazing on your resume.
When you attend our campus, you will feel a sense of family. The staff is very welcoming and committed to see you grow and develop as an individual.
