A junior boarding and day school for boys in grades six, seven, eight, and nine
Winter Carnival 2019
Eaglebrook's Winter Carnival, first held in the winter of 1925, is the second oldest of its kind in the country. Only Dartmouth College's Winter Carnival is older. On a weekend in early February, parents join Eaglebrook students for classes, parent symposia, games, a play, a concert, and parent-teacher conferences. The weekend activities include skiing, outdoor competitions, and traditional Winter Carnival events. All students - day and boarding - are on campus for Carnival and may leave for a long weekend with their parents after their last obligation on Saturday. Boarding students must return by Monday evening.
