This page is dedicated to the development and guidance for Scouts aspiring to the rank of Eagle Scout, and to provide convenient access to policy and procedures regarding that advancement.
The designation of Eagle Scout is a most high honor and recognition. It is reserved for those few Scouts who have demonstrated that they have fulfilled the mission of the Boy Scouts of America [which] is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. Please review content in the sub-pages and attachments (below) to get a sense of what this means, what the adult leadership is considering every step of the way to Eagle, and how an objective Board of Review goes about making a determination.
Adult Leadership duty, including that of the members of the BOR, is to ensure that the Eagle candidate has truely internalized the value system. This advancement is often not well understood by either the Scout or the Scout's parents. It is NOT achieved by merely acquiring 21 merit badges and completion of an Eagle service project. It is achieved over many years of consistent diligence, responsibility, and sincerity with respect to the Scout's Troop and community.
