The Edward P. Evans Academic Center at Eaglebrook

Transforming Teaching & Learning

The Edward P. Evans Academic Center, which opened in March 2017, has given Eaglebrook a dramatic new look within the interior campus. The new Science, Arts, and Music center gives Eaglebrook students opportunties to explore, create, and discover.
