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

Campus Living

Six dormitory houses nestled in to Eaglebrook's hilltop campus in western Massachusetts are homes for the boys, faculty, and faculty families at Eaglebrook School. They are Eagle's Nest, Halsted House, Taylor House, Flagler House, Kravis House, and Mayer House.

Living with Middle School Boys

Inside the dormitories exists a family environment in which boys live, work, and play with the same people who are their teachers and coaches. These men and women share their living rooms with the boys and can offer popcorn after sports; others bake cookies, and all are there to offer support and advice. Eaglebrook's teachers are caring adults with secure values. The close nurturing family spirit that exists between the house faculty and the students is a strength of the school and shapes life at Eaglebrook. At Eaglebrook, we believe that there are core skills that every middle school student should be familiar with, and many of Eaglebrook School's Core Skills overlap with the curriculum in the dormitories.

A Place to Study

In the dormitories, boys can learn effective study habits because they do their homework in their rooms with faculty supervision. During the study halls, teachers maintain an atmosphere free from distractions. Teachers are also on hand to answer questions and give extra help when needed. 

Day Students 

At Eaglebrook, day students receive the same warmth and care that boarders enjoy. Day students are assigned to dormitories and have advisors who include them in all school activities. They join committees, play on athletic teams, serve on the Student Council, and share in community service around the school. Because of the daily interaction among all boys, close friendships between day students and boarders result. Many visit in each other's homes on weekends and vacations.

Activities

List of 3 items.

  • Daily Assembly

    Each morning Eaglebrook School's campus comes alive with songs, stories, concerts, acting, videos, and illustrated lectures. Each Sixth Former has an assembly date to present to the entire school.
  • Saturdays

    Since Eaglebrook has no Saturday classes, boys participate in the schools numerous organized activities on and off campus.  These activities can include: athletic games, cooking, community service, riflery, board games, library research, overnights, museum visits, dances, field trips, tournaments, ski trips, movies, plays, concerts, town trips, bicycle trips, and swimming. Watch a short video and take a look at some photos that give an idea of what the Saturday morning activity period looks like.
  • Parent Weekends

    Eaglebrook School has two Parent Weekends.  The first is Country Fair in mid-October, four weeks after the opening of school, and the second is Winter Carnival in early February. On both of these long weekends, parents have the opportunity to visit classes, talk with teachers, watch athletic games, and attend student performances. Rich in tradition, Eaglebrook School's Winter Carnival is the second oldest in the country.
