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.”
Eaglebrook School students and faculty raised money between Thanksgiving and winter break for Adopt-a-Family, an organization that provides families in need with a little bit of Christmas cheer. Students living in the five dormitories came up with different plans to raise the money; some sold hot chocolate, while others went from room to room collecting donations. After a substantial amount of money was raised, the presents were bought using the wish lists for each family provided by the local Adopt-a-Family organization as a guide. The Ski Team, who could not yet get on the hill to train due to lack of snow, wrapped some of the presents for the families during sports late last week. Various degrees of wrapping skills were brought in to play, but all of the boys knew that they were doing something for a good cause, so they put in the extra effort. See photos of the wrapping party.
The Eaglebrook School chorus and string orchestra was also instrumental in spreading holiday cheer this season. Both groups visited local nursing homes and schools to perform some holiday favorites. See photos of the chorus singing at a nearby nursing home.
