The Scout rank is the first rank achieved by new Scouts when they enter Scouts BSA. After this milestone, there are six more steps to Eagle Scout. (Actually thousands of steps, but to reach Eagle, the new scout has to rank up through 6 more levels)
To be recognized as having reached Scout Rank, the new BSA youth member has to learn—among other things—the scout sign, the scout oath, the scout law, and the Outdoor Code.
