Eagle Scout is the highest rank a Scout age 11-17 can achieve.

Read helpful steps on your Trail to Eagle below..

The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service.

Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank. In fact, only 4 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. More than 1.2 million Boy Scouts have earned the rank since 1911, and they make up only 0.512% of the U.S. male population. Eagle Scouts are a special breed!

This page is dedicated to the youth who strive to become a part of the small percent of young men who reach Scouting’s highest achievement.
