Advancement in scouting is a by-product of being an active scout.
An active scout that attends Tuesday meetings and trips will learn new scouting skills and will naturally complete requirements for rank advancement. Some scouts attend every activity and advance more quickly. Some scouts attend sporadically due to school, sports, or family conflicts and will advance more slowly. Either way is great.

Significance of Eagle
The fact that a boy is 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 community service. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 1 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1911. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.
