History and Philosophy

Eaglebrook, a middle school for boys in the sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth grades, was founded with these basic beliefs:
  • Children learn best when connected with the outdoors.
  • Middle School is the time when children establish lifelong values and skills.
  • Middle School students - growing and changing at different times and different rates - need an education that meets them where they are in their development.
  • Children deserve a childhood with time and space to explore, discover, and wonder.


Family and Community

Eaglebrook’s faculty and staff are central to the school’s success.
  • Faculty and staff create a sense of family and community in all aspects of school life: dorms, classes, dining, sports, weekends, and extra-curricular activities.
  • Faculty and staff serve as mentors, helping children realize their mistakes will lead to progress.
  • Faculty and staff are role models, acting with kindness, recognizing each individual’s worth and embracing differences.
  • Faculty and staff understand that, as in any family, there are respectful boundaries that separate children from children and children from adults.


Ninth Grade and Leadership

In the ninth grade, children begin to emerge as young adults.
  • Eaglebrook’s ninth grade students take on leadership roles in all aspects of school life.
  • Ninth grade students at Eaglebrook are aware of their actions and understand that they are role models for the younger students.
  • Ninth grade students engage in their classes and realize that academic success will help them gain admittance into secondary school.
  • Ninth grade students have opportunities to display their talents, to build on existing skills, and to develop new interests.
