Summary: At Eagle Hill, a distinguished faculty offers a wide range of courses in our college preparatory program of studies. Students are challenged with demanding coursework in the traditional disciplines, including a diverse offering of elective courses, and are given the opportunity to pursue their interests and passions in the creative and performing arts. At the same time, each student's specific academic needs are given careful consideration as a program of study is developed under the guidance of the student's academic advisor.

Summary: Eagle Hill School fosters a spirit of community and encourages involvement and engagement both in and out of the classroom. Students develop and nurture life skills necessary for college and beyond through participation in a residential program that is much more than the dormitories on campus.
Athletics, clubs, activities and weekend trips are specifically chosen to challenge and inspire our students to find new strengths. Every student should feel comfortable with the person they are today while they find the person they will become.

Summary: Arts and athletics both play an important role in fostering mental and physical development.
Central to Eagle Hill School’s arts curriculum is a belief in the vital importance of the creative imagination. The imagination is where new ideas are generated, where true artistic development and progress become possible. Our teachers support and nurture their students’ creative imaginations by helping these young adults to find means of personal expression that are effective and appropriate for them, and then to make real – in paintings, drawings, sculptures, handcrafted household objects, dramatic and musical performances, musical scores, plays, videos, computer graphics – the power of their own ideas, perceptions and responses. In doing so, EHS’s Creative Arts faculty remain acutely sensitive and responsive to a variety of learning styles. Our sports and fitness center allows students the opportunity to participate in daily activities and/or sports. The sports and fitness center features an indoor swimming pool, squash courts, a climbing wall, three basketball courts, fitness center, and a multipurpose room for dance, zumba, fencing, yoga, and others.

Summary: With virtually all Eagle Hill graduates matriculating to college, the primary function of the guidance department is to facilitate the college search and application process. The department recommends colleges, levels of support, and necessary accommodations for each student during his or her junior year. The faculty works closely with seniors to help complete their applications and submit the necessary materials.

Summary: From early July through early August, Eagle Hill runs a five-week session for students ages 10-16 who have been diagnosed with specific learning (dis)abilities and/or Attention Deficit Disorder. Consistent with our mission, the Eagle Hill summer session provides academic enrichment and skill development for students interested in addressing specific academic and social skills needs or maintaining progress achieved over the preceding academic year. Electives and sports activities are combined with academic courses to address the needs of the whole person in a camp atmosphere. This success-oriented environment gives bright, motivated students the opportunity to flourish. Our summer session is also a great way for students entering the fall session for the first time in September to become acquainted with the campus, the faculty, and their peers. This head start ensures a smooth and successful transition.
