EagleTime App

The EagleTime app is a free download from the Apple App store or Play Store. You can use it to check the daily block schedule, read JH announcements, access teacher websites, and receive notifications from teachers.

After downloading the app:

  1. If you have never used the app before, you will need to tap the menu button on the top left to sign up for an account.
  2. On the Classes screen, click the + button to select your classes. You will need to know each course, the course section number, and the teacher’s name. You can find all of this information on your printed timetable.
  3. After this is done, the daily block schedule will automatically appear in your individualized agenda.
