Eagle Academy (Belle Glade)
Eagle Academy strictly enforces discipline: a button not done up, a word out of place or being late for lunch could result in 10 press-ups or 20 star jumps, depending on the infraction.
The program claims to have helped about 80 percent of the detainees to lead a productive life.
According to the new budget of 2013, The Eagle Academy was closed, saving $4.5M a year.
