Boarding Schools Eaglebrook School
Eaglebrook is a junior boarding and day school for boys in grades six, seven, eight, and nine located in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Founded in 1922, Eaglebrook’s vision is to help each student develop his unique gifts during the important middle school years, and our mission is to meet boys where they are in their development and to encourage them to build self-confidence through success. Eaglebrook offers a rich and diverse curriculum geared toward the learning styles of middle school boys.
At the heart of the school is the shared life of teachers, their families, and boys working together. Teachers make learning an adventure and watch over each boy’s personal growth. They set the academic tone, coach the teams, serve as dormitory parents, and are available for a boy when he needs a friend. They endeavor to motivate boys to reach beyond the easily attained and help them realize that mistakes can lead to progress.
In the classroom, the dormitory, the dining room, the sports field, and in all other areas of school life, Eaglebrook School seeks to foster and teach middle school aged boys the following core skills: The Skills of Self-Advocacy and Accountability, The Skills of Understanding Information, The Skills of Communicating Information, The Skills of Critical Thinking, The Skills of Organization and Time Management, The Skills of Citizenship, The Skills of Healthy Living.
Mountain Club. Eaglebrook School maintains numerous camp sites, and boys create their own in the woods around the school on the Deerfield, Massachusetts campus. In groups of three or more, with food provided by the kitchen, and under close faculty supervision, boys can participate in overnight camping and out of doors activities on the weekend. These activities can include: hiking, canoeing, biking, fishing, kayaking, and mountain climbing.
