A junior boarding and day school for boys in grades six, seven, eight, and nine

Eric Wiberg '86

I give to Eaglebrook because the campus and the people who bring it to life combined to provide me with some of the happiest years of my life. As an adult I realize that middle school years can be fraught with insecurities and uncertainties, and while I underwent a lot of changes while at Eaglebrook, they were mostly growth and along a good direction and well-guided path, nurtured and encouraged by the faculty and staff. I made lasting friendships at the Brook and return often to recapture some of the awe and innocence I experienced as a 12-year-old fresh off an airplane from the Bahamas, now over 30 years ago. I consider the people at Eaglebrook to be extended family, and the campus to be a home away from home – a touchstone of sorts as I – and my son and family – continue to grow.
