Description

Established in 1967, Eagle Hill School is a co-educational college preparatory boarding school that provides an individualized education for students with diverse learning profiles, including those identified as having dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, as well as students with ADHD (inattentive type).

Serving a population of 220 young men and women in grades eight through twelve, Eagle Hill is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the National Association of Independent School (NAIS,) and is recognized for its expertise in developing individualized courses of study for students traditionally described as learning disabled. In addition, Eagle Hill is an IB World School that offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

What makes Eagle Hill School fundamentally different than other schools is that we genuinely understand that each student’s path to the future will be unique, that some of our students will imagine futures for themselves that have never been imagined before—and that we will have to learn alongside them how they will realize those futures. It is our understanding of and appreciation for the vastness of human diversity—sometimes elsewhere understood as disabilities—that is the indispensable idea on which our curriculum and instruction are built.

In addition to our academic year program, which boasts a 98% college matriculation rate to colleges and universities throughout the United States, we also offer a five-week summer program for program for students aged 10-16 provides academic skill development in a camp environment full of amazing electives courses, such as woodworking, STEM, graphic arts, visual and performing arts, and fitness.
