Why would you send a sixth-grade boy to boarding school? Shouldn't a ninth-grade student start high school? What is a junior boarding school? Make an appointment to visit us today and learn why Eaglebrook, a boarding and day school for boys in middle school, might be the right place for your son.
Eaglebrook School was founded in 1922 by Howard Gibbs as a private boarding and day school for boys in middle school. Learn about our school in Deerfield, Massachusetts then and now, and read about the Core Skills we think every boy should know.
At Eaglebrook, we recognize that all students learn in different ways, vary in their innate abilities, and come from a variety of educational backgrounds. Classes at Eaglebrook are organized to meet the needs of each boy.
Eaglebrook is a close community of middle school students, teachers, and their families. Activities outside of the academic classroom are important to the intellectual, social, physical, and emotional development of boys in middle school. Learn about the programs we offer at Eaglebrook, from athletics to arts.
At Eaglebrook, boys learn more than they ever thought possible, discover inner resources, develop self-confidence, and have fun along the way. Delivering on our mission is only possible through the incredible generosity of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, and friends.”
It was a crisp sunny Wednesday afternoon and the Eaglebrook junior varsity 2 team and the coaches, Carter Townsend, Miles Harlow, and Nicholas Sadnytzky, walked on the Deerfield Academy playing field. The coaches made the team go through some passing and kicking drills and of course, some stretches. The Deerfield Academy team walked onto the field and went into formation and our Eaglebrook players were a bit intimidated by the sheer size of the DA players. Our young Eagles were holding their own for a while but DA was able to score 2 goals in the first half.
After the first half, the coaches touted that we would be able to defeat this team if we spread out, ran faster, and at all costs avoided the cone of death… Then our huddle broke and the Eaglebrook team went back into formation and was ready to execute our strategy. Again the ref’s whistle cracked the silence and the Eaglebrook team was able to get the ball and score. Morale was high but unfortunately, that was short-lived. DA was able to score 3 more goals and the final score was 1 to 5.
