Summary: Eaglebrook recognizes that all students learn in different ways, vary in their innate ability, and come from a variety of educational backgrounds. Classes are organized to meet the needs of each boy, and extra help is always available.
Eaglebrook School has earned a reputation as an innovator in curriculum. The school year is divided into three academic trimesters with seven classes that meet Monday through Friday in a rotating schedule of six periods. Boys are assigned to the appropriate English and mathematics classes. In world languages, history, and science, students have some choices. The Art Department, academic departments, Athletic Department, and individual teachers offer elective courses that meet each trimester. These chosen electives give boys an opportunity to design part of their own course of study.

Summary: Five dormitory houses are homes for the boys, faculty, and faculty families. 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.

Summary: Eaglebrook School has always had a strong tradition in athletics, and it continues to work hard to maintain a vibrant middle school athletic program suitable for boys of all sizes and abilities. The concept of team is very important, and we foster a close and challenging environment for young boys to learn important life lessons of commitment, cooperation, and sportsmanship. In understanding that boys need and enjoy vigorous activity, the athletic program has a wide range of sports that meet daily. Boys receive training in many areas that will allow them to improve their athletic skills and develop a lifetime of pleasure in physical activity.
Eaglebrook boys brighten the school with their imagination and creativity. Trained artists offer all Eaglebrook students a multimedia introduction to art. Each trimester, students have an opportunity to choose from a wide variety of electives in the Visual and Performing Arts.

Summary: Eaglebrook School has a Director of Placement who helps each boy and his family select, visit, and apply to secondary schools that are appropriate to the boy's aptitude, interests, achievement, and talents. The Director of Placement works closely with parents, arranges for admissions officers from secondary schools to visit Eaglebrook, and help students with their applications. They work together until the boy has decided upon his secondary school in the spring of his ninth grade year.
