A junior boarding and day school for boys in grades six, seven, eight, and nine
How Could You Do It?
At Eaglebrook, we understand middle school boys, and we know how to teach them the skills they will need for the rest of their lives. Boys leave Eaglebrook transformed and ready to take on the world.
Why Choose a Junior Boarding School?
“How can you do it? How can you send your child away from home to Eaglebrook during his middle school years?” This is a charged question, because a junior boarding school for boys in sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth grades is not a tradition in American education. However, far too often the conditions in local schools are not ideal. “How could you do it?” is a question parents may hear and it is a question they must answer for their own peace of mind. The answer is, How could you NOT do it?
A Safe Place for Boys to Learn & Grow
In today’s complex world, often both parents have demanding careers. They want their children in a safe, structured and nurturing environment. At Eaglebrook School the rural western Masschusetts setting offers a safe place for students to learn and enjoy their childhood without the distractions and temptations found in public and day schools. Perhaps the current school is not meeting their children’s needs. The classes at Eaglebrook are smallwith close supervision for mastering skills, developing talents, and expanding interests. The day is structured with time for classes, meals, study, activities, and sports. The teachers are knowledgeable, understand and enjoy middle school children, and are secure in their personal values.
The best answer to the question, “How can you do it?” is found at Eaglebrook School: in the beauty of the rolling hills, in the kindness of men and women who teach and coach, in the family-like atmosphere in our dormitory houses, in the nurturing environment, and in the dining room at family style meals.
