Press Release


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 21, 2013 — National Heritage Academies (NHA), one of the nation’s largest charter school management companies, awarded Burton Glen Charter Academy with an Eagle Award at its annual awards ceremony on Monday, Nov. 18.
Burton Glen Charter Academy earned an Eagle Award for Employee Engagement which means more than 75 percent of employees are considered engaged using the Hewitt 6 measure on the spring employee survey. Engaged teachers leads to more effective learning in the classroom. In 2012-13, Burton Glen students experienced academic growth at 131 percent of the national average. 
Principal Denesha Rawls-Smith reacted to the award by saying, “The entire teaching staff at Burton Glen Charter Academy is passionate about our goal to ensure that all of our students are on a college bound path. The staff’s commitment to our students can easily be seen in the classroom.”
This is the 13th year NHA honored its top performing schools with Eagle Awards. Along with Employee Engagement, NHA rewards schools in seven other areas including: Academic Growth, Parent Satisfaction, Enrollment and Attrition, State Accountability, Taking Flight, Soaring to New Heights, and School of the Year.
NHA’s system of schools is designed to eliminate achievement gaps and provide school choice to families, with the clear objective of preparing children for success in high school, college and beyond.
