Why Eaglebrook? I came to Eaglebrook after a couple of years of "ski bumming" in Breckenridge Colorado. I was 22 years old and I viewed it as a "stop along the way" to get some experience before moving on to a prep school. Now 19 years have gone by and I'm still here! There are many reasons why I've been at Eaglebrook for so long, but some that stand out are the impact that our program has on the students, the amazing community, and the beautiful setting.
What are your interests/hobbies? Mountain Biking, Skiing, Fly Fishing, and New England sports teams.
