“High School Boot Camp” is a 90-minute documentary that chronicles a unique educational program in rural Florida for at-risk teens. They come to Eagle Academy with histories of drug abuse and conflicts with the law. In a five-month semester these kids volunteer to be taught discipline, and are given the tools to develop higher self-esteem.
Through the eyes the youngest recruit, we experience the critical transformation. From the first harrowing days of drill instructors screaming commands, to the proud moments of graduation, we witness how these teens take hold of their lives through demanding military exercises and forced discipline.
