Records Request for Students: 

We understand that some families will explore other educational opportunities for their child, and we support that right. Please let us know what you may need for your exploration, and we will help. But be advised: (By Law) if East Wake Academy receives a formal record request from another school for your child, that child will be withdrawn from East Wake Academy for the following school year (2021 - 2022). East Wake Academy's receipt of the request is final and out of our hands legally. Please be in contact with Mrs. Campbell so she can help you. Mrs. Campbell can be reached at
