The Advisor System

Advising Middle School Boys

Each Eaglebrook student - boarding and day - has a dormitory advisor that he sees every day. Advisors help students consider Eaglebrook to be a home-away-from-home, and parents contact them with questions or concerns. Advisors guide our middle school students through difficult times, help them celebrate successes, watch over their academic progress, and act as mentors. Advisors work in partnership with Eaglebrook parents to make sure each child is getting the attention he deserves. On Wednesday Home Nights, advisors and their group of students plan a dinner and activities. The close relationship that develops between students and advisors is a long-standing tradition 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 what each advisor tries to accomplish with a student.
