Eagle Scout Advancement

The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried a special significance – not only in Scouting, but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service.  The award is a performance-based achievement in which standards have been well-maintained over the years. 

Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout Troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5% of all Boy Scouts do so.  The goals of Scouting – citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness – remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.
