Eagle Scout is the Highest Advancement Rank in Boy Scouting

Attaining the rank of Eagle has continued to be a goal Boy Scouts for over 100 years. The honor of becoming 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 within the community. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Eagle Scouts represent dedication, perseverance, and Scouting at its very best. – Once an Eagle, always an Eagle!

  • In 2010, 56,176 Scouts earned the rank of Eagle Scout.
  • Around 5% of all Boy Scouts earned the Eagle Scout rank in 2010.
  • In 2010, the average age of boys earning the Eagle Scout rank was 17 years old.
  • From 1912 to 2010, more than 2 million Boy Scouts earned the Eagle Scout rank.


**NOTE: Eagle Scout rank requirement 5 has been reworded. To support that change, a new Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook has been created. Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Eagle Scout candidates, unless they have already submitted a plan for approval by the council or district under the former requirement will be expected to fulfill the revised service project requirement 5 using the new workbook. (see link below for NEW workbook)
