 Mr. Patrick Prophile, Director of Scholar Life

Mr. Prophile is the Middle School Dean has been working with children for over 20 years in education and continues to be inspired by building leaders of tomorrow as productive citizens.  Throughout his career, he has taught life science, social studies, career skills and computers.  He firmly believes that the greatest gift of a teacher is the capacity to mold and shape student lives that have them believe the decisions that they make matter and promote change.  His role as Dean of Student Affairs at Eagle is to arm students with the power to make good decisions, mold leaders of tomorrow and uplift one another to achieve in every endeavor.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Mr. Prophile was raised in the heart and soul of East Flatbush.  After graduating from South Shore High School, he attended the University at Albany where he graduated in 1994 receiving his Bachelor of Arts in History.  Next, he completed a dual masters program receiving his Masters in Science of Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology and Masters in Arts for History.  He continued his higher education while teaching in NYC and received his Masters of Education for School Supervision and Administration.  During his spare time, he loves to play chess and compares the game to our daily lives. It is up to us to think about the rewards and consequences life has to offer us each time we make a move!  Think about it.

Remember, we shape the leaders of tomorrow today.  Let’s make a difference with the children we serve on a daily basis.  You can contact Dean Prophile at
